Data Fest

Medium logo

The Data Fest is a live data visualization that reflects a crowds movement.

It works like this ... through a web application we connect to the participants' smartphones to track the movement from the crowd. Everyone is a part of a team with a representative color. The collective movement is visualized on a wall and the participants individual movement is also displayed on the screens of their phones. The more they dance the quicker the colorful light flash. The colors also make it possible for people to recognize others in their team.

The Data Fest is a side project, that started out with a pitch idea for The Nation of Yamarill []

Facilitating Change Through Data

Medium hi project ifbookthen 640x360px 02

The buzz says that data is important but what do we know about data? Can data change how we market books, empower readers to discover their favorite book among 5 million available titles or enhance user experience through gamification?

Together with 5 Digital Data Strategist students, armed with a cocktail of storytelling, design and data-driven business development, we explored these areas and wrote a book on opportunities that data can bring to the industry of publishing. The book was released yesterday (21st of March 2013) on the publishing conference “If Book Then - Stockholm”, hosted by the publishing platform company Publit and trade magazine Svensk Handel.

Game of Me

With my fellow classmates I got a task to create a 'game of me' in our 3rd module! A game with one goal—change or enhance certain behaviors!

I took the challenge to expand my network globally. I focused on my LinkedIn, Twitter and Pinterest accounts to find new and inspiring connections. To complete my game I set some rules, I had to complete 5 levels and in the end I have to achieved new connections in at least 20 cities and 10 countries.

Medium hi project soundscape 640x360px

We are all living in a world where we listen to different kinds of sounds everyday. In the morning we wake up to the alarm clock. On our way to work we hear the birds singing and the wind swirling around us.

The European Union claims that 25% of all of the Europeans gets their health and quality of life reduced, because of the outdoor noisy sounds.

We created a 3D interactive art visualization were we engaged people to go outside to see the message. We scaled down the pieces of the message with 25% and put it on the window. From the right angle you would see our message and be in the space of outdoor noises, while standing on the street to view it.
