1. V-Card Portfolio is an Interactive Installation for the "Media and Interaction Design" - Master exhibition.
    The user chooses the v-card corresponding to the portfolio he wants to see. A barcode on the backside is scanned and gives access to the projects of the person.
    By touching the arrows the portfolio can be navigated.
    If you like the project, you can simply take the v-card and get in contact with the designer.

    Project realized with Arduino, Processing and Resolume Arena.

  2. A generative experiment.
    The "Jakominiplatz" is the main point of transfer in the public transport system of Graz, Austria.
    We created an invisible and imaginary world on this mostly crowded location.
    Colorful creatures populate the place and try to make their way autonomously based on their needs and fears.
    Like in the real world, the location provides several alimentation zones. When hungry, the creatures try to find the nearest and best suiting source of nutrition to strengthen themselves.
    As this transfer point provides many chances to meet people, the creatures are also driven by the urge to meet other individuals. If the encounter fits well, the creatures procreate and lay an egg.
    This egg brings a new creature into the world, that inherits several parameters like color, size and form.
    But there are also dangers in this world. The creatures have to be aware of the passing trams, that can do severe harm or even kill.

    The project was developed as a table based application with ReacTivision and Processing.

  3. The assembly festival in Graz is a showcase for designers during the design month in Graz.

    In 2011 we were able to create a small and simple interactive installation for the local design agencie white elephant (ww.white-elephant.at) to present theit work at the festival.

    As they were not able to show the whole bandwith of their work in the limited space, we created a portfolio application that showed some of the projects digitally.

    We combined one of their objects – the wardrobe Swing-a-ding – with a projection of the work and an intuitive control.

    A conductive fabric is used to create a control area with which the user can simply use pulling gestures to go to the next or the previous project. He just makes the gesture as if he was pulling down the cloth to see the next part.

    To show the visitors, that this is not just a simple slideshow, we implemented a distance sensor so that the installation reacts to approaching or passing visitors.
    First it just shows one big picture of the project and only by coming closer you get further information and pictures about it.

    The project is created by:

    Andreas Jain
    Stefan Kuzaj (stefan-kuzaj.de)
    Daniel Kwast (affectit.de)

    In partnership with
    white elephant Design Lab (white-elephant.at)

    Created with:
    Processing (processing.org)
    Arduino (arduino.cc) .

  4. short study project in cooperation with the diagonale.

  5. Informationen können Leben retten. Bei der Behandlung von
    Patienten im Krankenhaus werden viele Daten erfasst und
    kommuniziert. Das Behandlungspersonal befindet sich im
    stetigen Austausch. Ein Fehler in der Kommunikation,
    der Informationsverarbeitung und -weitergabe kann fatale
    Folgen haben.
