Design Better Cards – uxdesign.cc What the card says about our place in history The card currently symbolizes the height of a fragmented societal consciousness alienated from its humanity, and desperately searching for meaning. The result is a condition where addiction loops dictate how media is consumed. Vapid blips are on constant rotation, pedaling the emotions of arousal to direct attention towards what the content manipulator, advertiser, and siren server wants us to see. Joy, happiness, anger, frustration, hate, and excitement are offered as a way to temporarily distract us from our reality and greater potential to change it. This spectacle will change when designers and engineers push back on the linear trajectory of the web and direct it toward the reality we wish to bring into existence.

HOME — Motion + Design Jigyasa is an interactive installation that incorporates augmented reality to explore the notions of curiosity and discovery and encourages participants to look beyond what they see at the surface. The piece is structured like a planet, which is peppered with quirky characters and various flora and fauna. The participants have to explore various regions of Jigyasa to see what each character reveals about itself and discover what hidden surprises lay buried amongst the trees.

It also attempts to recreate a childlike desire to interact with fantastical creatures in an imaginary world and see a painting come to life.
