LIMB-O - Marlot Meyer in The Self Design Academy/MU
(Bachelor Interactive Media Design 2020)

The interactive media installation LIMB-O accentuates the powers and dialogues that occur within our body, and our physical and digital environments. It produces a space where our intuition is encouraged to push us into a wider range of possible experiences. Technology can offer a new kind of perception: a networked, communal, travelling knowledge-making that eventually reminds us that we already know.

"Novel" flickers between the masks we wear in society. The girls go through an introspective journey in a quarantine, accompanied by their phones and devices. They use frontal cameras and gossip to find themselves and augment their reality.

The Care Water Closet (CWC) - Mary Farwy
(Master Interior Architecture INSIDE 2020)

The Care Water Closet (CWC) - Mary Fawry (INSIDE 2020)
The care agents; Ferti, Bubbly and Pupazzo

The Care Water Closet (CWC) proposes a future scenario of the everyday toilet, mobilised with care tools for the ‘normal human’. Look! Care here is for the self, the others and the water. So, what does individual and collective care mean when everything is about speed, in times of digital domination? The care watercloset, the care agents and their care tools, are createed as an alien senario, reflecting on the current world we live in and to emphasize on the urgency to care in times of care crisis. The care watercloset focuses on both; the mental care crisis and the water crisis.

The project #helloeveryone! invites everyone to step into the very near future - the time when technology and machines will reach sufficient levels of efficiency and leave us with enough time to rediscover our human nature. What will the new city landscape look like? What kind of role will human play within it?
