      ‘People are rarely moved to action, support, or even consent by realistic proposals; they are motivated by dreams of what could be.’ (Duncombe) We often judge a book on its cover, a movie by its trailer or its synopsis. As designers we take part in shaping the everyday world, we live in. In history technological innovation has always contributed to social, cultural and poltical transfromation. A fact we have to bear in mind. Imagine we were asked to create a new world, which would be a very ambitious undertaking, what would this world look like? How should the idea of such a world be presented (before we buy it)? What would it need to convince us and other people to live in an alternative reality? What are the details we should pay attention to? And where should we leave it blurry? If we think of this as a movie-trailer for an alternative world, what should it address to get people involved? In this course we aim high and create glimpses of an alternative reality in more or less three images. ( a course tought at hfk bremen, digital media in WS2011-12 by Gunnar Green and Willy Sengewald from TheGreenEyl )

      • Marcel Helmer & Benjamin Skirlo: vorstadt.methoden()

        Die Vorstadt ist ein Lebensraum voller Eigenarten und Besonderheiten. Ein Lebensraum mit Regeln und Methoden die essentiell für seine Bewohner und prägend für die Erscheinung sind. In nur wenigen Räumen leben sich diese Methoden so deutlich aus wie im Vorgarten eines Hauses. Die offene Lage zur Straße macht die Grünfläche zum Repräsentativen Mittelpunkt seines Besitzers. Ein regelmäßiges "zurücksetzen" dieses ständig im bestreben der Erhaltung des Status Quo ausgerichteten Systems, verstärkt und unterstreicht die Bedeutung dieser Methoden. Eine noch genauere Planung und noch straffere Organisation der Handlungen werden unablässig, da nur ein geringes Zeitfenster bleibt um die Aussendarstellung herzustellen. Dabei unterstehen selbst die Methoden einer Ordnung und Reihenfolge. Eine Hierarchie entsteht die dem Aussenstehendem Betrachter unverständlich und willkürlich scheint, in sich jedoch eine zwanghaft, begründetes System aufweist. Entstanden durch Gewohn- und Begebenheiten des Bewohners und seiner Umgebung enstanden Ordnung und Aufbau der einzelnen Handlungen.

          • Extending Spaces

            Due to Climate Change the sea level could rise dramatically. When it reaches the cities, our daily life could be dictated by the tide. In this scenario it will be necessary to spend more time in buildings, feeling the pressure of the water masses outside and the constriction of the crowded rooms inside. In this situation claustrophobic feelings will emerge more frequently and the ways to escape are blocked by the water. Inspired by virtual reality exposition therapy we developed 3 objects extending the room in a visual, an acoustic and an olfactoric way. Goggles with wide angle lenses stretch the visual space of the room. A combination of earplugs and a microphone extend the acoustic space of the room by adding a real time hall effect. The last device changes the olfactoric perception of the room. A tube connected to the user’s nose allows him to sniff at a chosen capsule filled with odoriphores triggering memories of wide spaces.

              What are Tags?
