    The classical poster does often not offer enough space for the sheer complexity of the contents – texts, pictures, graphs and tables – used to convey scientific research today which causes inability to communicate contents and statements concisely. The classical poster also lacks an appropriate possibility for continuous updates which are necessary to include newer research results and would do justice to today‘s constant changes of information.
    The interactive poster is a a new method of presenting scientific topics in an attractive way, offering the user an easier access to the contents and a clearly improved possibility of comprehension. The illustrated topics are supposed to function self-explanatory and long-lasting which means that the viewer can decide on the depth and duration of the information process.
    The interactive poster can be used for various purposes: For the internal demonstration of the research projects (poster sessions), on expert conferences and conventions in an international context. The newly developed technology -LED displays with a touch frame- can be used in a more reliable and long-lasting way than conventional projection technologies.

    Ist das klassische, gedruckte Plakat als das Medium der Wissenschaftsvermittlung noch zeitgemäß? Die Komplexität und die kurzen Aktualisierungszyklen der Inhalte – Texte, Bilder, Grafiken und Tabellen – die heute zur Vermittlung wissenschaftlicher Forschung verwendet werden, finden auf dem klassischen Plakat oft kein Platz mehr oder führen dazu, dass die Inhalte und Aussagen nicht prägnant kommuniziert werden können. Verständnis und Reichweite von Forschungsergebnissen nehmen ab.
    Durch das interaktive Poster erhalten wissenschaftliche Themen eine attraktive Darstellung mit einer deutlich verbesserten Nachvollziehbarkeit. Die dargestellten Themen sollen selbsterklärend und nachhaltig wirken, d.h. der Betrachter bestimmt die Informationstiefe und die Dauer der Vermittlung. Das interaktive Poster ist flexibel einsetzbar: Zur internen Demonstration der Forschungsaufgaben (wiss. Poster Sessions) oder auf Fachtagungen, Messen und Kongressen im internationalen Kontext. Die neu entwickelte Technologie- LED-Displays mit Touchrahmen- wird sehr viel zuverlässiger und langlebiger einsetzbar sein als konventionelle Projektionstechnik.

  2. Eine Ausstellung des Kieler Lymphknotenregisters in der Medizin- und Pharmaziehistorischen Sammlung der Universität zu Kiel.

    In Zusammenarbeit mit dem Pathologischen Institut der Unikliniken Schleswig-Holstein und der Medizin- und Pharmaziehistorischen Sammlung der Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel hat das Team von Rappaport Kommunikationsdesign ein Tool entwickelt dass es Besuchern ermöglichen soll Erkrankungen des Lymphatischen Systems zu verstehen. Das Exponat ist Teil der bis Januar laufenden Ausstellung "50 Jahre Lymphomforschung Kiel".

    Wissenschaftliche Inhalte: Prof. Dr. Wolfram Klapper, Ulrich Mechler

  3. Many clever minds have thought about future technology. The development is advancing rapidly and can be difficult to predict, particularly with regard to the impact this technical advancement will have on society and the individual both in a negative and positive sense. »The Internet is Just Hype« is an interactive installation which presents quotations on the future of technology. The collected quotations, which have been found to be amusing miscal- culations or whose outcome is still open, are mixed with the expectations of the exhibition visitors, who submit their own predictions. This creates a multifarious, and sometimes bizarre, interactive mix of outdated projections, realistic estimations but also predictions bordering on science fiction.

  4. The book “Sensing the Ocean” is based on the collaboration between the Kiel Marine Research Cluster of Excellence The Future Ocean and the Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design. The book shows how artists, designers and scientists can complement each other creatively, what differentiates artistic and scientific research, and illustrates how the interplay of competence gives rise to new insights.With Contributions from Tom Duscher, Martin Visbeck, Stephan Sachs, Manfred Schulz, Klaus Wallmann, Peter Friedrich Stephan, Ingrid Ernst, Norbert M. Schmitz, Julian Klein, Thomas G. Bosch, Johanna Barnbeck, Arne Zerbst, Rainer W. Ernst, Christian Engler und Tobias Hoss. Redaktion: Jolan Kieschke.
    Editors: Tom Duscher, Stephan Sachs, Manfred Schulz

    The book was designed by Teresa Döge and Björn Schmidt (teresadoege.com) who also did this excellent turning pages video. The type „Frederick” is designed by Philipp Neumeyer (philippneumeyer.com)

    2018 Sensing the Ocean has been awarded by the New York Type Directors Club für it's typographic excellence.

    Covering 71% of the Earth’s surface, water is an important part of the global ecosystem. Every development and change in the sea also affects life on earth. Datasets help us to understand conditions and ecological processes such as changes in salinity or temperature. Scientists of various disciplines have spent the last 100 years gathering data in order to analyse it and discover relations between different sets of data.

    However, the more frequent and more comprehensive studies are being conducted, the more accurate predictions can be made about the future. These predictions directly influence political, economical and social decision making processes on a global scale.

    30° allows the viewer to explore the analysis of large quantities of data on an aesthetic as well as a spatial level. The exhibited data originates from measurements taken along the 30th meridian west, which, for the most part, runs across open ocean waters. Short animations visualise parameters such as temperature, salinity or oxygen. Graphics are used to visualise data fluctuations and comparisons of individual points of measurement. A scale allows the chronological classification of each measurement. 30° hopes to draw attention to the efforts of scientists who have dedicated their work to gaining a better understanding of the sea in order to preserve the world’s oceans.
