Media Lab Helsinki

Culture Planet

The concept design project aims to develop new interfaces for narrating and exploring cultural information using ontological classification and semantic structures. The project targets development of experimental visualization systems for dynamic datasets working towards exposure of new connections between cultural objects. The concept also includes aspects of social networking and user generated content.

Design goals:

• Enrich peoples lives and expand their cultural activities

• Inform about cultural activities and connect them to their historical background and cultural heritage locations

• Encourage sharing, talking and discussion related to culture

The project is commissioned by YLE Culture.
