Online the visualization of the VIDA Prizes of Telefonica Foundation

20. May 2013

Telefonica Foundation asked Ultra-lab, a company which I'm partner of, to develop a visualizacion of the VIDA Prizes database.

We proposed them to show the collection in a 3D environment that could be explored by the users in a first person game-like navigation. The space was designed to create the illusion of an unknown territory that is being occupied by experimental and rhizomatical practices. The metaphor of a space fill with colonies of exotique creatures drives the whole experience. You can see a set of images here.

As creative director of the project, I designed and developed the visualization, which was exhibited in the Premios Vida 2012 exhibition. Today, with the help of the developers at the studio Helsinki 203, it has been ported to Javascript and published online with its own site: http://vida.fundaciontelefonica.com/premiosvida/
