Proposals night

Tonight has been very active, almost looked like the Christmas night. We woke up, and there were 5 new proposals that filled the projects folder on the website at the Tech Museum. We will briefly describe and explain them to you and we’ll continue working in order to have everything ready to start voting today from 22 pm on, local time in Barcelona.

Memory Launch

Memory Launch is an installation that suggests sending memories in video or photo format from any place in Citilab to the  friends of the visitors. These friends  are in different places, outside  Citilab.

The Internet has changed the way we share memories in that we can almost “transmit” them to people who are far away. Memories are shared by photo and video but also by souvenirs… Send them to your friends (or to home) from this cube! How does this change the notion of memory versus what it is happening now?

These ideas was proposed by Kyle Walker.

Message Modes

This cube explores and tests the experience of three different types of communication. It allows visitors to send messages to someone else on the other side of the cube by using three means: writing, chat, and videoconferencing. Visitors can observe and enjoy their experiences using these types of communication. Which one is faster? Is there any difference in how we communicate using a medium or another?

This proposal was made by Bob Ketner.

Dynamic Docuverse

The “docuverse” is a concept that was coined by Ted Nelson in 1974 when he conceptualized the Internet as a centralised source of information. Now, the Internet allows documents to be  changing forever, and many versions of a document may exist across the Internet.  Besides that, documents themselves change as we edit them in multi-user platforms. The Internet now allows us to have such  documents that  are aso dynamic that the concept of what a document is is put into question. This cube discusses how  collaborating on a document in real time changes our conception of documents in general.

This proposal was made by Bob Ketner.

The world is flat

On a computer screen, the world is flat. It is in this flat world where people connect and visit various places through videos, images, text, etc… In this module the visitor can use four touchscreens. Each screen offers him or her several options: Google Earth, Google Images, YouTube and a webcam, and visitors are free to travel in two dimensions around this flat world and share it with others.

This proposal belongs to Huodig Nguyen.

Future workspace

This installation represents a preview of a workstation of the future. It shows how different employees will use the same window. Each table will have a set of screens placed in a circle and so people will be able to work in different projects.

This was one of the first proposals, which has finally been documented  by Daffodil Yuhara.

Tonight you will be able to vote!

You see, this is a box of surprises! Stay in touch with us and we look forward to receive your votes on-line or accompanying us tomorrow, Thursday April, the 8 starting at 17h, in Citilab. Remember that at 18:30 pm (local time in Barcelona) we will close the votes space,  so do not miss it!
