The whole process of the Summer School led to the establishment of a Commons. Each component in place has participated and has been critical to creating an environment of high quality relationship. The results are the basis of what is defined as Commons. The various working groups, involved in all aspects of the experience, are collected here and their work is visible, experienceable and free to be used.
The group compared with interaction design common problems, observing and giving value to possible alternatives on the interactive installation designing, and relational ways with the viewer and expositive space. Starting from the state of the arts analysis, the department extrapolated key function modalities of an interactive work able to communicate data and sensoriality.
A device able to transmit collected data from Human Ecosystem directly to the body. Conversely of neural helmets that obtains data from the person who uses it, BAOTAZ Wearable donates a new sensoriality to the person, the empathic interconnection sense.
Data visualization group handled to build a visualization that represents, as much as possible, the complexity, stratification and contradictory nature of the meaning of “Inhabiting the planet”.
Showing the complexity instead giving an interpretation, working on polar coordinates that allowed us to explore and assemble different qualitative variables, and allowing the user to actively work to create his own point of view about the ongoing discussion.
Setting up the research of expressions on inhabiting topic, through the Human Ecosystem platform preparing data for the other groups. Participants analysed the platform, learning to implement a research and analysing by a critically way the anthropological and linguistic implications of social media listening.
The group, moreover, produced a usage handbook as an output in order to furnish a metamodel able to permit to participants of the Summer School and anyone else to set up a research on the “La Cura Summer School” project field, from here was born “BAOTAZ”.
The analysis of La Cura brand was fundamentally important in order to begin and analyse affinities and divergences with the ongoing process during La Cura Summer School and to define it on the basis of a coherent projectual line.
How is it possible to give value to the results and to the involved people at the mean time? How is it possible to share the created value enabling other people?
Were imagined use scenarios to describe communication tools able to perform the process in the best way. The result was an open and sharable platform.
The food is not conventional communication. The food is the spread and trace of a way. Food is research. Food is a metaphor for what we are. Food is open source.
