My News and Sports My Way (2005-07)

Based on the experience from Future News Media and other projects, Malmö University researchers joined an international consortium of fifteen high-ranking academic and industrial partners to look closer into future directions in media production.

Malmö University focused on the production and consumption of news and sports, and developed a suite of production tools to deliver shapeshifting material: News and sports that each viewer can customize by setting the length of a news show, explore interesting themes in depth and look for related news material in wide-ranging media archives.

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.
