In short, the installation works like this: visitors can pick up little cards representing the exhibits. Putting them on the table will draw an associative, organic network of tags, media and related projects around them. If you put multiple cards on the table, the visualization will form “bridges”, looking for direct or indirect connections between the projects.
The installation has been designed and developed by the MACE project team of the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam and made possible by many others (credits).
You can find more info and media on the mæve project website.
