The Facebook Facelift is a self initiated project to challenge the form and functionality of Facebook. It's streamlined, structured, linear interface is more comprehendible, enhancing the user experience and absorbability of content.
The home page features many new benefits: the publisher toolbar enables users to post content from any page within Facebook, saving time in navigating needlessly through profiles; the streams' two-tiered filter (content type & content contributers) also creates a more coherent structure with the core elements retaining their position throughout most of the site; and the live feed displays a constant stream of all content posted in a users network, which expands upon mouse over.
Profiles also integrate with the system more seamlessly. Just as friend lists filter the stream by a select number of people, user profiles simply filter content to a single person, creating a clearer and more comprehendible layout.

"Because clicking is so 90s" challenges user interaction online: It is the first website which can be controlled only with motion and voice.
The evolution of input devices for machines and computers reveals: mouse and keyboard are only a temporary status quo for human machine interaction (HMI). The web application "Because clicking is so 90s" now pushes this development along for an experimental online use. The trend for using native and intuitive navigation systems — which has become more and more important for the offline world (e. g. Multitouch, Project Natal) — is now transferred to the online world.
The goal of this web application is to avoid the use of keyboard and / or mouse — in fact inadequate bridges for true HMI (man communication = machine communication) — to introduce an alternative way for navigation with native human methods such as gestures, motion and voice. Of course, not all previous navigation methods can be adapted one-to-one or even applied at all. For this reason, this work evaluates and suggests a new type for navigation with adapted movement, voice and operating concepts and a further developed user experience.
These advanced options with the so called "audio-visual navigation" are exemplary presented with a portfolio website. Beside contents for presenting and interacting with media assets, there are also special applications like an interactive music instrument (the so-called „Play") or an intuitively rotatable and zoomable 3D object. Thus, this project creates a new awareness for alternative navigation methods, it also provides meaningful, elegant and exploratory applications.
Dans la suite du travail sur 48x48," Scattered Pixel" est une nouvelle installation volumétrique interactive du collectif Visual System.
