Todays music enjoyment mostly consists of clicking through lists. In »MagTracks« every song has an own triangle-visualization. The color shows the genre, the length stands for the playtime and the hearing frequency is shown with its transparency. It is also possible to create search poles. If a song matches to it, it will position itself near the search pole.

Ever thought about using a computer without the desktop metapher? I did at my bachelor thesis. In »LineUp« metadata become visual metashapes, which are organized in timelines. You can easily compare data, create a large number of versions without getting lost in them and link different data without rearranging them. Which friends have access to which data? All these informations can be easily seen with »LineUp«.

The digital Thumb

How does digital reading changes our body? While reading on a smartphone, the thumb mostly navigates through the text. Is the thumb made for this? In this little booklet, the evolution of the thumb will be analyzed. Afterwards the reader gets to know the movements of the thumb and can try them out on a relief. These informations are then combined with the actual thumb usage on a smartphone. We learn: Use your finger wisely.

Deceptive Illusion

According to a german report on poverty 330,000 people are homeless in Germany. They live and move in the same places as the general public but are nevertheless invisible. Supposed piles of waste are silent witnesses of a society that coexists with ours.

What happens with the data we lose all day long? If you pay with credit card, drive on a highway or write a postcard. Everything is tracked. And then? No one really knows. If you order something online at »Company A« and get some days later advertising from »Company B«, you see that your data wandered. So I researched which companys cooperate with each other. These informations created a big network that shows how data could wander. Nearly everything is interconnected.

How a sugar made lampshade creates a message against climate change. »Iluliaq« is West Greenlandic and means iceberg. Not only visually the lampshade should remind of an iceberg: As a light bulb generates heat, the sugar of the lampshade will slowly melt. This reminds the user of the melting icebergs and to only use as much light as necessary.

The »Zeitschrift der Straße« is the first local magazine, that is distributed by homeless people in Bremen and Bremerhaven. Each issue takes a closer look to a special part of these cities. I interviewd Mrs Lauruschkat, who sells seldom vegatables and herbs. She offers seeds for 60 kinds of mint and 150 kinds of cocktail tomatoes.
