Standing IN your Story

Standing IN your Story

Visual-Spaces is an instrument to help you connect the steps you want to take, to whatever story you are living.

Visual-Spaces is the start of an online platform geared towards the Virtual Experience of context related information. These SPACES help you to stand next to what people DO instead of reading about its in neatly filled out paragraphs.

However…This platform is NOT meant to be totally immersive. It is still being prototyped as we experience it ourselves , to help you expand the way you experience content and interact with others by being able to stand in the middle of the story…as it develops.

This new online experience introduces the beginnings of something new. The ability to look at value plotted over time. By being able to move through the entire picture and look at the situation from all angles, you are given the opportunity to understand everyone’s point of view.

Constellations of ART

Constellations of ART

In Wassenaar we have a windmill. In this monumentally Dutch beauty there is a gallery. A place where exhibitions are curated, sourced from the active community of city residents and good friends who make art together (or by themselves). To make this community more visible we are using the art of Wassenaar as a source of content we hope to liberate by making an interactive VISUAL – SPACE.
We have been engaging members with re-calibration sessions organized by helene courrier and Dennis Luijer. Step by step we are uncovering a new story that opens up the doors to this 45+ year old art group. By doing these sessions we slowly but surely uncover a new story. Starting with eggs we moved into self portraits and during the last session we started to look at the community through all of its art.

By simply taking all the online content of the art group and putting it together in one visual multiverse ( a long print of paper), we were able to look at the diversity and multi talented group of artists who live and create in Wassenaar.

But in order to really start engaging with the different types of art be needed to cut up the print and make the artists create their own CONSTELLATIONS.

One of the best things that came out of this session was the Truus-Remark that we should look at the art of Wassenaar not as groups of disciplines, but as dispersed random creations. What if you would zoom through a space and experience a chaotic collection of creation…all made in Wassenaar. This thought was amazing… thank you Truus!
After a session like this, you go home and think about what steps can be made to make this group and its Artfull expressions, more visible to the outside world beyond the windmill.
Jannis Karalis and Dennis Luijer are looking at the interaction and the story connecting all of these unique possible spaces. In our main VISUAL SPACE you will find a bubble with a floating triangular logo inside. This is where we will try to build up the connection between all of the members of the Art group Wassenaar.
On the 12th of December we will be adding more content to the space WITH the people who will come. Click here to go and check it out.
At the moment this experience will only run on your PC… the mobile efforts are coming along nicely. We have the backing of some friends at T-mobile,. who have provided us with some phones for experimentation. Once this platform is downloadable from either the play- or the appstore… there is going to be a party!

An experiential MAP

An experiential MAP

This Space has been under development for a while now. It is a MAP that shares the look and feel of the Westduinpark in The Hague. The idea behind it lies in the participatory process of the municipality of The hague. In 2014 (!) they organised co-creative sessions under the inspired hands of Tom Vaessen. This Lead to lots of ideas which can be seen at Visually yours here.
This  V I S U A L – S P A C E  has some different element in it to engage all the people who worked on all of the future plans of the park. Check it out on www.haagseduinen.nl 

INTERCOMMUNITY17

INTERCOMMUNITY17

Visually yours is an invested partner in the Event Design Collective. An international team of event professionals who are improving the event industry standard through systematical design of change .
In pursuit of a strategically designed event value for the INTERNET SOCIETY  the collective was invited to help realise a huge global online event called INTERCOMMUNITY. This Global 24 hour event connected 56 celebratory nodes and 15 hourly interactive nodes starting in Los Angeles and going to such cities as Tokyo, Johannesburg, Beirut, Geneva and Guatalahara.
every hour yielded a visual summery made by two great visual translators (Jefta Bade and Jochem Galama) and connected by Dennis Luijer of Visually yours.

To make this Visual come to life,
we have put it inside of a V I S U A L – S P A C E:

INTERCOMMUNITY.SPACE.

The idea behind this 360 transfer / infusion was to make the visual end result of the event a point of inspiration and remembrance beyond the event itself. When moving through the VISUAL-SPACE you can explore the summarized content of each different nodes. When you click on the cube, you will move to the twitter images made all over the world. When you engage the end station of this visual wall you will be taken to the final round table. The collected action points of each node can be experienced by moving over the nodes themselves

Please enjoy by using the Keyboard arrow for left/right/ up and down. Use your mouse or trackpad to look around.
The intention of this V I S U A L –  S P A C E  is to map out and SHOW the HUMANITY of the internet. The internet is a force for good and Humanity is at the centre of its growth. #shapetomorrow #next25.

Stand in the middle of your story!

Stand in the middle of your story!

People who are not looking for anything in particular are more willing to wander and explore in a space then scroll on a website. Audiences are starving g for input and new experiences that help focus their attention for just a little bit longer.

VR is a medium that has been used for entertainment long enough. The technology is getting to a point where we can start to really think about other ways to interact with information and stories. With VR we can start to think about putting the viewer in the driver seat of the story. Make experience information from the inside, instead of making the mental leap in your own head. To be able to stand in the middel of a story… that is the start!

We have been taught to think in 2 Dimensions because of the technologies that show us our truth… We make up our minds based on data which is is presented in 2 Dimensions but what if we add a 3rd and maybe even 4th dimension to our perspective of thinking? It will feel funny and complicated at first, but we are natural problem solvers and pattern spotters… we see and xp order in the most complex arenas. When we look in 3D, we add a dimension of depth in which we can xp MORE information. By experiencing information, we are primed to look at opportunities and barriers in a different way. When you are able to take more in.. your ability to make decisions based on more complex situations makes you more valuable. So visualization will make you more important! Storytelling will become more challenging once we are able to add extra dimensions…

Our reality consists of moments that are lived in spaces. We live & grow by experiencing our surroundings and build our perception of the world based on our connected moments. Every second of our existence, we are prepared or groomed to respond to an ever heightened level of stimuli. We are raised to be sensitive to information and critical to story, but we are losing our ability to just listen and absorb, because of our constant need to contribute or create value. Our 2 Dimensional interaction with information and knowledge has outgrown its ability to satisfy our visual need for interactive stories and quick visual orgasms. Experiences are the building blocks of our personalities and with that our cultures. We owe it to the experience (and that which we have experienced) to look beyond the 2D description and connect to what we want others to feel.

Connected Moments help you to share and experience the stories that you have been living over time. Visions live in our heads and are not easily transferable between people… it it were we would have a lot less conflict in the world, because we would simple understand and feel each others perspective. With the help of a connected moment we can help you to step through a difficult doorway or experience excess or bounce back from a barrier A connected moment can be experienced in your own time… in your own way. The impact it will have is based on its ability to connect YOU to the moment

“The connected moment” is a promise. Each connected moment is prototyped to help you to expand your thinking from a 2 Dimensional reality to a 3 or even 4 or 5 Dimensional experience. The CM gives the viewer the opportunity to Look at value over time, see and move through the entire picture to understand everyones point of view. The designed experiences help you connect your daily activity to the story you are living.

This new kind of experience introduces the beginnings of your ability to look at value plotted over time. By being able to move through the entire picture and look at the situation from all angles, you are given the opportunity to understand everyones point of view… and that is something worthwhile investing in!
