Future Ocean

  1. 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.

  2. The ocean, with its dominating influence on global climate and its major role as a source of important natural resources and devastating hazards. Within the Cluster of Excellence „Future Ocean”, a network of researchers will investigate past, present and future ocean change.

    Characteristic for the Future Ocean exhibition is the integrated use of media technology. Several projections have been installed not only to inform but to support the special atmosphere of being under water.

  3. The "Future Ocean Explorer" is a five meter long interactive multi-touch table created by the Muthesius Academy of Arts and Design in Kiel, Germany, for the cluster of excellence The Future Ocean
    Up to twelve visitors are simultaneously enabled to interact with articles, movies or animations on various topics of ocean and climate research.
    Headphones offer the visitor to listen to interviews with the scientists.
    The visualization is inspired by the deep sea. Swarms of typography allow visitors to 'fish' for information in a virtual pool of water and to go on a personal research trip into the science of the oceans.
    The interactive installation was designed for the marine science cluster "Future Ocean" which researches the fundamental topics of ocean and climate change.

  4. ARGO is an international program to monitor the entire global ocean with the help of so called floats, little torpedo-lookalikes filled with sensors and antennas.

    Every float dives down to 2000 meters level and drifts for about 10 days with the current. After this period the float surfaces and measures temperature and salinity related to pressure. Once the metal bugger reaches the surface, all the collected data is being send via satellite to a collecting point. And that’s where this installation drops in.

    The ARGO realtime float display shows all the latest data in a graphical visualization. Everytime a float sends new data, a window pops up and shows the temperature and salinity graph of this location. In additon you see the ID, longitude, latitude and time of broadcast.

  5. EN:
    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.
