Project Introduction

This project was completed in collaboration with Corinna Hirt and Janik Freisinger at the Hochschule für Gestaltung, Schwäbisch Gmünd. In the "Interactive Communication Design 1" course (supervised by Fabian Schröbel) we developed a interactive system wich communicates the process of dying.
The aim of this project was to lern how to design in the context of exibithions and how to transfer information.

Gesture Control Ideation

The great advantage of gesture control is that no external device is required. In addition, it can be used intuitively after learning the gestures and does not distract from the content. To navigate through the system we have chosen simple gestures:
A wipe gesture to the left or right to navigate back and forth. A wipe gesture up or down to open or close a side story. The open hand to control the cursor and the closed hand to select something. These gestures make all functions of the system easy to use.

Gesture Control Prototyping

we simulated a prototype to test the gestures and get a feeling for their behavior.


Our concept was implemented as a prototype in Principle. This serves to illustrate the flow of the application and simulates our system in action. The layout designed in Sketch was filled with graphic content drawn in Adobe Illustrator and animated in Adobe After Effects.
