Dear future disaster survivor,

This is the story of how your city is completely devastated and your world perishes without you.

On 26 April, 2011, the city of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, was devastated by a tornado. The result: 4,700 homes damaged, 10,000 made homeless, thousands injured. This web documentary in letter form offers not only general information about natural disasters. Its simple images, delicately drawn charts and the director’s voice over also create a very personal and emotional access to the subject.

“Criers of Medellín” is a virtual tour of the city of Medellín. We find ourselves in an interactive Google Street View map where every player chooses their own path through the Colombian metropolis to collect the market criers’ stories. Surrounded by a web of chants and original urban sounds we listen closely to the singing street sellers’ fears, desires and realities of life. Spots you would pass as a tourist with an amused look become the places where you stop to find an exciting world revealed in personal video portraits.

A streak of light floats in the water, controlled only by your breath. It’s like a brief vacation that takes place in one’s head, but this meditative journey can also be shared with others. In the virtual reality installation “Deep”, modern technology is combined with Yoga breathing techniques to create a new physical experience.

In the exhibition three players can simultaneously enter a virtual space, while the audience delve into an underwater world in Tim van Cromvoirt’s multimedia installation “Lungplants”.

Do Not Track

It’s scary what the Internet knows about us – and how this knowledge is used. Ever since Edward Snowden we’ve known about the consequences of the obsessive data collecting of seemingly harmless online providers in the name of national security.

It’s scary what the Internet knows about us – and how this knowledge is used. Ever since Edward Snowden we’ve known about the consequences of the obsessive data collecting of seemingly harmless online providers in the name of national security. But how exactly is a “like” click connected to our personal freedom? This documentary web series examines this and many other questions, while the user decides whether his or her data should be tracked simultaneously to produce an individual evaluation of Internet use. An interactive lesson in online security.

What does it mean to be a modern Pakistani? To get up even though you just thought that you couldn’t bear it anymore; because there may be a chance to create something wonderful even in the thickest chaos.

We follow three people who despite crushing contradictions between religious extremism and a modern way of life have not given up hopes of a positive future. In five chapters the interactive navigation takes us into the heart of Pakistan via videos, photos and texts, in a portrait far removed from any stereotype.

What does a worm have to do with the European forests? This game app offers a playful and informative story of the metamorphoses of earth. Minute finger movements change a landscape in fast motion from the ice age until today and illustrate how human beings influence nature. Little game episodes that invite especially (but not exclusively) young users to interact provide information about astronomy, geology and ecology.

The final version of this game app will be available free of charge for iOS and Android devices after the release of Jacques Perrin’s documentary “The Seasons”.

Anthropoid creatures with plugs instead of heads out of control. Instead of obeying the dictates of the raised finger they do what they want. But the fingers also finger around. Is it love or just destiny? It’s up to you to decide.

The project was part of the first DOK Leipzig Net Lab in 2012 and is regularly supplemented with new interviews.
