KLIV (2000-02)

Sharing and developing practical knowing is a challenge in any organization, and intensive care units in hospitals are no exceptions in this regard.

Malmö University researchers initiated and facilitated a participatory design process around this challenge together with intensive care staff at Malmö University Hospital. The final solution was based on locally produced instruction videos to be viewed on PDAs in the immediate context of the work at hand.

Barcode Beats (2008)

Media remix and creative appropriation are key elements in the interactive media, and Barcode Beats illustrates those principles perfectly.

The key idea is to connect beats, loops and other musical elements to barcodes such as the ones you would find on groceries. Thus the stage is set for all kinds of shopping-mall performances, where any shopper can take part. The idea may be simple, but it proves to be quite inspirational and engaging.

Barcode Beats was developed by the Malmö New Media Living Lab in collaboration with Rörelsen Gatans Röst och Ansikte.
