Case: Island Of Light is a light festival that takes place on Smögen, Sweden's west coast. We were told to come up with a new attraction to join in the next festival. It would not have to be a digital product, but we would visualize the idea with the help of digital tools as the customer would only have the idea sent to them without any presentation and still understand the concept.
Process: I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the greatest threat of our time, the climate. My idea was to visualize the rising water level with the help of laser. The water level looks different depending on where in the world you are and how far ahead in time you look so I took these parameters and built a UI together to control these through an iPad that would be located at the festival. By seeing the rise of the water surface in such a clear way, I hoped that you could influence people and make them understand, react and hopefully act. Therefore, I also suggested for Island Of Light to collaborate with any world organization and suggest the user to donate money to research or aid organizations.
Solution: Festival visitors interact with an iPad located close to the water, a laser lamp visualize the rising water level at different times in different places in the world.
