Imti

ZHDK, Spring 2015

We bond with our devices. Through them we are connected with our environment, regardless of location. Inevitably the act of charging turns into a daily ritual. Imti explores the issue of comprising freedom, autonomy, self-responsibility and the balance between the pleasures from being connected and the freedom from not being connected.

INDUO

ZHdK, Autumn 2013 

Induo, which is latin for «attracting» just wants to be a possibility to visualize data of the city of Zurich. In a series of hack nights, organised by the city of Zurich and members of the Swiss Open Data Association the task was to find out the best location for your undertaking or intention.
Induo takes the idea to connect locations with population statistics of the city of Zurich. Data is provided by the Open Data Portal of the city of Zurich and wants to give the user a new insight, prospect, and view of Zurich.

Fera

ZHdK, Autumn 2013 

Above the city cranes are moving. Almost unnoticed they come to construct new rooms and disappear. FERA catches their movements to create its own landscapes.

Almost unnoticed cranes come to construct new spaces only to disappear afterwards. In a much smaller scale Fera aims to reproduce those movements, which have been recorded over one day by placing an Arduino, a GPS module, and an SD-Card onto a cranes hook. The final installation moves an electromagnet over a surface covered in iron filings.

A sensor attached to a crane collects the data of their movement and share it simultaneously to Fera, which converts the movements in her own and starts building magnetic landscapes.
