ISLAND OF LIGHT
This was an individual project where we got a single week to deliver an interactive solution to the client. The brief was to create an experience-based interaction for the light festival Island of Light that is held in Smögen every year.
The customer wants to increase participation and improve the experience of the festival Island of Light. The product should be adapted to a digital screen, such as a mobile or ipad, as it is the primary communication channel during the festival in addition to IRL elements.
I created an interactive visualization of climate change in the world with a focus on temperature increase. The user can see how much temperature has increased during their lifetime, using a color-coded map and also how it looks where they live. My idea is that visitors interact with a digital screen like an ipad, but the design can also be adapted to the mobile. The digital screen can be located in a room. A kind of "interactive corner" for all festival visitors to experience.
I wanted to take this opportunity to focus on the environmental issue when the client mentioned that it could be an approach. To create a more emotional effect on the visitor, I made the design choice to let the user fill in the year of birth and where they live. In this way, the user gets a more personal connection to climate change, by seeing the change during their lifetime and how much it has changed where they live.
In this project i used After Effects, Photoshop and Figma
