Inicio starts collaboration with Raoul Wallenberg Academy cube project on a digital cube in Kista
We welcome the project network of the RWA Cube project and those of you who would be interested in adding a digital dimension to the display of the human rights to join our upcoming Digital Cube project.
If you are not already familiar with the RWA and the Cube project you can read more here (Swedish) and watch this video from the Cube installed in New York on the theme Freedom of Speech.
Creative cubes illustrating the 30 human rights articles
Every year, the Cube project engages schools and municipalities in Sweden and a few international sites that all work on illustrating one of the 30 articles in the declaration of human rights stated by the United Nations. The students get to use their creativity and formulate how they can stand up for their rights by using any mean of expression – text, images, interactivity, videos – showing how all of us can make a difference.
In the spring of 2018, Inicio was engaged in the Cube project and the content created at Adolf Fredriks musikklasser in Stockholm. A centre piece of the cube was a tree to which we added some sensors and pre-recorded sound so that you got some encouraging words when you hugged the tree. In the end of August all the cubes were gathered in Kungsträdgården as a public exhibition.
Join the Digital Cube project
More ideas of what could be done by adding some more connectivity and digital tech to the cubes led to a joint interest to explore this further by Inicio and RWA. In October we organised a workshop on what a “digital” cube in Kista could contain and could we connect cubes in various sites? We now have several ideas and are working on bringing the cube to Kista to start working with it. We have some schools and KTH students in Visual Computing signed up and we welcome close collaboration with industry and community in Kista. If this sounds interesting to you as an individual or organisation, please sign up here. We especially welcome all students ages 13-19 to join us and build the Digital cube.
