MeLa Critical Archive Prototype

During his Research Residency at CIID Andreas Koller was working on the MeLa* project with the goal to create interaction prototypes for the project’s archive. Eventually this archive will document all the results (text, images, videos) that have been produced by the participating researchers from 2011 to 2015. Being responsible for the design of this archive, CIID found the metaphor of a star map, thus reflecting a critical approach to the notion of a complete archive and visualising the complexity and uncertainty of the content itself. The MeLa* Critical Archive should be an open critical space, experimental in its navigation and interface – allowing the user to explore content and make connections. Andreas’ task was to prototype the interaction in a zoomable interface.
