Students of the Masters course Interaction Design at Umeå Institute of Design have been travelling back and forth to Abisko (even further north in Sweden), there they have found communication opportunities for various target audiences. This has resulted in a great variety of amazing projects, some shown below. For more information check this link.
Prototype of a control station for the umevatoriet mini Mars rovers. There will be 4 floor standing docks, and 6 table standing. Each dock controls a different function of the rover, so collaboration is key when navigating.
Together with UID in Umeå we designed and built this photobooth for student portraits. Inside is a two way mirror, with the camera and lights behind in the dark, so when sitting inside you cannot see the tech, or where the image is being taken from.
There is audio feedback from the camera shutter, when the user presses the all important biggish red button.
The making of the applied narrative design leaders, thanks guys it’s good stuff, I am pretty sure the lake was a bit cold when this filming was done.
Here are some more results of a three month residency by Oavsett, they were here to create, film and produce the below leaders among other shenanigans.
For the last 8 months we have been working together with the professor Iain Borden and then the appointed architect Soren Nordal Enevoldsen to realise a new space at The Southbank centre, on the river Thames in London. This public space has been designed in the sprit of the current skatable location, but has been tweaked to be really great for skateboarding.
This space will be made from high quality materials consisting of mostly granite slabs, and bricks, it has been legally guarantee for this use for 125 years, and the design allows for change, adaption and re-appropriation.
Many thanks for the input from all the skaters, bmxers and artist who came to the public meetings, and the others involved in the focus group meetings. We all hope that this design will help preserve the integrity of the cultures involved for the foreseeable future.
