Sparks Pop-up Science Shop: Future Health
Science Shops aren’t stores in the conventional sense of the word. A Science Shop is a project that supports independent, participative research as a means of responding to the concerns of civil society. In conjunction with the Sparks Pop-up Science Shop: Future Health, Shadowgram+ is being put to use as an extraordinary communications & research tool. Installation visitors write out their answers to research questions that have been posed; meanwhile, Shadowgram+ depicts the individual’s silhouette on a sticker. Applied in tandem, the posted image and words provide insights into personal conceptions of the future. The upshot of this playful, casual approach is a cluster of responses from which a realistic picture emerges. Each silhouette and the accompanying statement are registered as data and subsequently evaluated by Ars Electronica Futurelab staff researchers.
