An exhibition about the user-related data of my fellow student Carlo Frisch. In this exhibition extended realities (Virtual Reality, Mixed Reality, Augmented Reality) can be used to gain insight into Carlo's data, from the years 2008 - 2019.

What is the Topic?

I wanted to find out whether extended realities could be used as materialized thought spaces and thus provide a better opportunity for self-reflection. I also deal with the data we leave behind on the Internet. In the exhibition, visitors are given the opportunity to take in different perspectives, consolidating the resulting views into a convergent reality.

Why does it look like this?

Originally I had not planned an exhibition. In the end, it was created because it allows as many people as possible to deal with the topic. That was important to me. The design of the exhibition itself follows the findings of constructivism and didactic design. It was important to me to understand how people learn best in order to design the learning environment/exhibition accordingly. The different extended realities illustrate once again the process of taking off one's glasses and trying out a new perspective. With each exhibit I try to pertubate / disrupt the person to initiate a process of reflection.

What is special?

Carlo (about whose data the exhibition is about) is present himself as an exhibit/expert. This is to help break up the abstractness of data and enable visitors to make direct contact with Carlo. Ultimately, Carlo is the one who has learned the most from this exhibition about his data.

What is new?

Generally an exhibition on this topic. But also the possibility to use technique to sharpen your own inner attentiveness instead of distracting yourself from your inner self.
