Smart Citizen Sentiment Dashboard (SCSD) is an ongoing research and artist collaboration between Moritz Behrens (UCL) and me. It is an interactive and participatory installation that lets citizens engage with and compare opinions on urgent challenges in their cities and across connected cities. SCSD translates instant citizen feedback facilitated by custom-made urban devices into a visual language, which is displayed in real time on a media facade or urban screen. The media facade and its surrounding turn into a stage for social encounter and debate. The aim is to create an open, aesthetic dialogue about the quality of urban living, by playfully allowing people to convey their opinion about urgent challenges.
Cuenesics is an interaction design study for public displays and mid-air gestural interaction. It proposes a design space for hand-gesture-based mid-air selection techniques on interactive public displays, along with four specific techniques that have been evaluated in different real-world locations.

The project MyPosition is a collaboration between me, the Mobile & Physical Interaction Team of Telekom Innovation Labs / TU Berlin and the Institute for Internet and Society at the Alexander von Humboldt University in Berlin. It is an interactive urban facade, which represents a collective visualization of citizen opinions. MyPosition has been integrated in the architectural and social fabrics of several local communities in Berlin and aims to enable them to easily participate, come into dialogue and reason on local civic issues and challenges.
