We have many things going at the moment in ExLab: the Italian pictures exhibition at Instituto Italiano di Cultura di Copenhagen, the FAB LAB initiative, the Viking Ship museum project, the BiMus Roskilde development project committee, the Orange Innovation network, a FKK post.doc application, a further development of the ExCylinder, and future application ideas.
This Tuesday we discussed all of these activities to find our paths. Several new applications are in the pipeline at the moment (Italienske billeder, Havhingsten, Landgangsbroen, Lyd, Intelligent spaces for teaching and learning), and John mentioned that some of the themes of the EU program “Horizon 2020” appear to be relevant to ExLab research. So, “why not give it a try” was his implicit question – we will discuss this question at our next meeting, December 11 😉
We also discussed the newly started FAB LAB at RUC and the question of how to further develop the relationship between ExLab and FAB LAB. It was mentioned and agreed upon that we should call attention to needs for equipment and also make visible in the FAB LAB some of the many activities of ExLab.
På mødet i dag drøfter vi afslutningen af det fysiske design af ExCylinderen og brugen af den i Haralds workshop. Der er lavet videooptagelser af workshoppen, som vi skal finde ud af at bruge.
De projekter der er i gang med design af vikingetidsmaterialet og den hybride og interaktive installation, der kombinerer en bog og en udstilling, beretter også om den seneste udvikling af projekterne.
Vores “gamle” projektorer kan evt. bruges til udlån i RUC AV – det skal vi også lige have fundet ud af.
HøjteknologIfonden har ansøgningsfrist i januar, så vi kigger på deres opslag, kriterier og finansieringsmodeller for at vurdere om ExLab skal udarbejde en ansøgning.
The annual celebration at Roskilde University was the occasion for all of us in ExLab to show the new design of the Experience Cylinder constructed by Engelbrecht Construction A/S. Three groups of guests joined us in the lab for a presentation of our work and research.
Morten and Ates are working hard to prepare the presentation of a 3D model of the solar system in the new ExCylinder:
To show our visitors that traditional media and technologies are also part of our work and research Bjørn presented the sketches from his many visits to Italy. The sketches and the model below is meant to be the content of a “hybrid” of an interactive book and an interactive exhibition. Bjørn is currently working together with Henning and Morten to realize this idea:
The height of the ExCylinder is 4 meter it was therefore a thrilling experience to wait for the moment when it would show if the installation was too tall and big for the lab:
