In my two years at kollision, an award-winning Danish design studio specialising in interactive communication, interaction design, dynamic media architecture and citizen participation, I developed a number of concepts and pitches for competitions. These are some of the projects I worked on:
I developed the concept and pitch for what eventually became Salling Lights, an interactive media façade on Aarhus’ most iconic department store, located in the heart of the city. The family behind the department store has always had a special relationship with the city, and the installation is a way for the department store to communicate with the citizens. It’s not a place for advertisements, but a place where the city’s pulse can be visualised.
To enable the use of social media we identified the need for designing and developing a social media strategy, and a dashboard for SE and local CBOs to monitor social media activity, and identify successes within the project. This required us to shape the campaign structure and provide tools for the young people to document their activities, in dialogue with SE.
Volunteers from different CBOs in the four African countries will cooperate across borders, raising awareness on how to avoid climate change through campaigns.
