The Digital Emotion of a Physical Being

No Comments

That would be our project for Radiant Equilibrium, our kick-ass exhibition where over a thousand people came. It was something remarkable about letting people interact with what you have created.

This is our project-film. Take a minute to watch, it is beautiful!

Last Monday our program managers at Hyper Island gave us a brief. The brief was to create a list of the one hundred  companies which we find most attractive to work for. Along with that our task was to create an event for Friday. Needless to say, 260 brains started whizzing and buzzing. Then our PM’s left us for the rest of the week. My class, DMC (Digital Media Creative), headed to our floor where we split into subgroups, and then subgroups after that. I became a part of the PR team. Unfortunately I fell sick and got to observe the progress and process from afar. It was amazing to see how quickly things started to happen. All of a sudden a webpage was up: hi100

I worked on Thursday with something which my classmates made up: The Future Box. The venue which we have spent the last couple of weeks is a black box. They decided to create “The Future Box – what is within the box?”. We created several black boxes and then revealed on Friday that we are in the future box, because we are the future! I joined the event full of sponsors, video game room, OCULUS  RIFT & SAMSUNG GEAR VR! I was MIND BLOWN. The OR was a blue room with a chair and pen, whilst the Gear VR had different options of countries which one could visit. I accidentally chose Sweden, Fjällbacka, but anyhow, IT WAS AMAZING. I laughed and screamed at the same time, constantly thinking: I can’t wait till’ this is the future. Also a tad worried because I may not ever want to leave those virtual realities….

Not Too Cool For School

No Comments

 I have a crush on school. Lucky me to have a crush on something hehe. Today was sweet, we are working with the other programs for a couple of weeks and meeting some of those guys was great, although it felt rough to pop the solitude-bubble of my class…=( We got to take part of a great lecture by Alex Neuman. He walked us through as well as clarified, what “digital” means. He talked about digital trends and the future, encouraging us to be the:

Builders of the future. 

A quote I’ll take with me and remind myself of. Never stagnate. Always learn and always see opportunities, or invent them.

A camera from back when. Will we be able to take photos with our eyes in a couple of years? Print a memory directly onto the screen? He who lives shall see.



First Day of School – Hyper Island, Digital Media Creative

The Hyper Island Way Week

50 new faces, voices, energies 

150 new life stories 

10 hours 

Those numbers sums up my first day at Hyper Island. I was beyond excited last night and this morning. I got about three hours of interrupted sleep. The urge to start took over.

The excitement is even stronger now, to get going for real, but things have been  added to it, a kind of gratefulness/happiness/relief/curiosity-state. 

I’ve encountered a ridiculous amount of life-destinies today and I am eager to get to dive deep into each and every one of them.

What a journey we have embarked on, me and my classmates. Soul-journeys and the obvious learning-journey

The only picture I took from today:


My brain feels like a mashed potato and I’m going to try and wind down. It is a funny feeling to be completely and utterly psychologically drained and still not being able to calm the f down… 😀
