With three exemplary, fully functional prototypes, we show how interactive installations can create new possibilities for communicating information in a more tangible and sustainable way. In the "Waterpollution" installation, the user can visualize the water pollution of different countries in an interactive water basin.
Tokens placed in an interactive water basin invite you to learn more about water pollution.
With "Human Diagram", the user himself becomes a data graphic in a digital mirror. The "Big Mac Index" installation enables a comparison of the purchasing power in different metropolitan areas. With the help of a fitness device, the user performs work in order to obtain information. They experience the difference on their own body.
