Digitalisation is more than a mere translation of the analogue. It is a more profound shift in society and our world. The virtual world is becoming increasingly interwoven with the real world, provoking new forms of immersion, experience and materiality.
The exhibition «Planet Digital» was realised by the Zurich University of the Arts, the University of Zurich and the Zurich University of Applied Sciences together with Museum für Gestaltung. Together with national and international artists and designers, 23 projects have been developed that inquire about the present and future state of digitalisation.
«All the Lives» is an immersive mixed media installation by Nadine Cocina, Dr. Björn Franke and Paulina Zybinska. It gives visitors the possibility to virtually experience different life situations. Through a deep fake algorithm, image and voice samples of the visitor are integrated into short films that depict them in alternative states of life.
«Stop Hate Speech» investigates the spread of hate speech in the internet and explores possibilities of action to deal with hostility and insults that attack a person or group based on their identity.
These works were developed by Interaction Design students as part of the Reactive Signs module by Luke Franzke and Rebecca Morganti-Pfaffhauser.
