1. Wir wollten eine Anwendung schaffen, die weltweit besprochene Design Themen erfasst und zugleich aktuelles und vergangenes Designgeschehen erkundbar macht.

    Das Ergebnis ist eine Internetseite auf der man sich direkt über die aktuellsten Designkonferenzen informieren kann. Es lassen sich aber auch Querverbindungen zwischen besprochenen Themen, referierenden Personen, Events und deren Austragungsorten herstellen.

    Dieser Informationsfluss lässt sich weiterführen, indem man die Entwicklungen von Themen und Personen, in Abhängigkeit von der Zeit, grafisch miteinander vergleicht.

    listed ist somit ein aktueller Eventkalender und eine kurze Reise in die heutige und vergangene Designwelt.

  2. The Kiel marine science cluster "Future Ocean" researches the fundamental topics of ocean and climate change and consists of various scientific institutions.

    With the interactive multi-touch table projection "Ocean Explorer" at the same time up to twelve visitors are enabled to interact with articles, movies or animations on various topics of ocean and climate research.
    Earphones allow the visitor to listen to the scientists comments.

    The visualization is inspired by the deep sea, the table is also a basin with a certain volume.
    The five meter long and 120 centimeters wide multi-touch table shows typographically animated swarms and allows the visitor to angle for information in a virtual pool of water and to go on a personal research trip about ocean science.
    The modular housing of the table and the inside projector construction is just as the entire software an in-house development of the Muthesius Academy Of Arts.

  4. Made by Nico Uthe at Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design
    Is it possible that the exclamation of the end of the world is able to provoke the apocalypse?

    We are inside an american printery for newspaper in the 1950s now. A freshly printed newspaper comes to the fore. The headline proclaims the end of the world and pushes us straight towards the reports of the financial crisis of nowadays at the same time. The illustration of a comet, which is running down to the earth, intensifies the impression of the approaching end.

    The film asks the question which consequences could be caused by information and news.
    With regard to the financial crisis, the metaphor is a kind of an exaggerated persiflage: only the message of the apocalypse causes the end of the world – a self-fulfilling prophecy caused by the media!

    The layout of the newspaper changes during the film parallel to the dramatic of the story.
    The first reaction releases a visual chaos which develops while the film continues. An information flood takes the audience by surprise. Letters, words, graphics, illustrations, photo collage – the whole design collapses like an avalanche and is getting rebuild in the form of the comet, which is made of terms and graphical material.
