Will we be more or less alone in a digital world?
fishing food chain
Fish caught by fisherman, caught by businessman, caught by robot...
Antivirus Architecture as urban design
Can we design and build our cities better to stop virus from spreading
Stopping the shopping
Sketched up this drawing yesterday… Researching it, I wonder why it is so often the young that have to change the ways of the adults, and the kids that take action to stop their parents from ruining our planet
We meet tough times wearing different glasses
Sketching social media and the fifteen minutes of fame
The algorithm keeping score
Selv-isolation and loneliness
Still trying to grasp the change here, from fighting loneliness, to moving as far away from each other as possible... it seems like it happened in a second
Reporting from a distance
Will journalism change as new technology and risks change the ways reporters can work
Reality out of order
Some days it seems to me like the digital dimensions might still be working, but reality is less so...
Keeping our distance
The latest news tells everybody to keep a distance to stop the virus... Schools are closed, public places empty and we are all keeping our distance
Driven by technology
Cars stop in front of the school and both kids and parents inside are on their phones... I wonder if they are talking together... or with the car?
The insect mobile citizen science project
The idea that is starting to spread is to put nets on cars that volunteers drive around on a special route on certain times. Collecting samples of the insects there and counting and documenting what they have found
Planting trees together
No doubt I'm skeptical about how phones and technology are changing our lives both indoors and on the trails. But once in a while I see it can also do good
Ringing birds memory lane
The expert were explaining how the important work of ringing birds and collecting data about bird migration and behavior was coordinated all over the world and my thoughts went back to Ertholmene... where I used to stay together with the bird-people
Pokemon go for biodiversity
Watching kids walk everywhere and point their phones around caching Pokemon Go virtual creatures I was just one of many wondering... couldn't this be used in ways to document biodiversity and wildlife... I sketched up my idea and explained it on a Citizen Science conference and a guy said: "it exist... several ones I think" The most well-known one is called "Seek"
Cityzen science architecture
Co creation is also about place-making and architecture, about creating places where people can walk, meet, discuss and innovate together
Those closest to the problems can be the best to help solve them
Challenges from pollution, to habitat loss, to hunger, to climate change might have at least one thing in common - Those closest to them can play essential roles in solving them
The science jam session
Innovating is often better with an element of chaos, chance and music mindsets thrown into the session
The Scientist as conductor
Some leaders consider themselves music conductors, helping all the participants and experts to work together
Search chain vs follow the leader community
Drawing of a group of people holding hands making a search chain, and the same people making a line, walking after each other. Community illustration by Frits Ahlefeldt
From concerned to engaged
Can new technology give us an option to act on our concerns, instead of just sharing them?
Jumping the motivation gap
What is it that makes us take the first steps?
What is Citizen Science
Preparing my talk about Citizen science and how we can understand it, both as creating trails and as images, I sketched up a scientist in a boat with just one oar
Seeing the bigger picture
Drawing up how each of us seldom have all the facts
Is Earth the burning platform?
Watching images of burning forests all around the world I looked up...
