Together with Tobias Gallé from PikDrei Johannes Bayer (Jotopia | Visual Noise) guided a workshop with students of Visual Communication (Annalena Can, Elena Mendolia-Callela, Fabian Kargl, Lars Siebert, Leonie Dietrich and Luca Büttner) in context of the B-Seite-Festival at PORT25 in Mannheim.
The workshop on the theme of “XYZ” combined aspects of physical installed elements in a dimension of 4 to 6 meters and virtual video-mappings and sought to fuse two- and three-dimensional elements such as flats and spaces.
Thanks a lot to Zacharias Zschenderlein for providing the music to us!

Jotopia | Visual Noise developed the illustrations and keyvisuals for an explanatory movie for the medical faculty of the University of Heidelberg. The animation clarifies the course of a test called “Studentischer kompetenzorientierter Progresstest”, in which students are able to rate themselves and their state of knowledge in comparison to other students. The film makes use of 2,5D pop up card aesthetics to illustrate the simplicity of the test.
