Helping products tell their stories is a growing field we are working on at Stereoscape. The increasing volume of IoT data generated by the things around us needs to be communicated to drive better understanding, learning and decision-making. To broaden our thinking on how to translate and present IoT data for explanatory, analytical and inspirational purposes, we also look for new insights at the intersection of art and technology.

Our project with artist Josefina Nelimarkka on her latest exhibition, Kairos καιρός at HAM Helsinki Art Museum, is an exciting collaboration on communicating atmospheric phenomena. A graduate from the Royal College of Art in London and the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki, Nelimarkka works in both cities. She merges arts and sciences in her multidisciplinary works that often focus on rendering visible the inaccessible and invisible worlds that are impossible to grasp directly.

Kairos (‘time’ and ‘a supreme moment’ in Ancient Greek and ‘weather’ in Modern Greek) is inspired by the research on atmospheric aerosol particles and climate change at INAR Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research at the University of Helsinki. Stereoscape had the pleasure of working with the artist on screen-based installations, including augmented reality that overlays digital content on top of the real world. Air quality data from a real-time emission monitoring system installed on the roof of the museum in downtown Helsinki is translated into interactive visual experiences. These ‘airscapes’ are constantly changing in form, colour and sound with the actual air quality.

Enabling products, objects or spaces to communicate with people through interactive visualisation of real-time sensor data is an integral part of smart product communication. This inspiring art project has provided us with fresh impulses on how to render the invisible visible through creative visualisation and how to help users interact with IoT data to explore and make sense of it.

Boosting MedTech training and after-sales services with augmented reality

With travel restrictions and physical distancing widely adopted as measures to tackle the global Covid-19 crisis, many sectors of society have had to expedite their digitisation plans and look at more effective ways for remote working.

Enterprise AR/VR – proving the business case

AR and VR are helping drive digital transformation in enterprises. VR is typically used in product design or to replicate real-life situations in immersive learning, whilst AR is streamlining workflows, speeding up troubleshooting, boosting on-the-job learning and more. Presenting a solid business case is one of the key steps in adopting AR/VR for enterprise use. A well-structured proof of concept will help you build the business case.

Interactivity and multilayer storytelling

In our last blog, we looked at how effective information architecture (IA) helps make sense of complex information. The way information is organised becomes even more important when creating interactive or multi-layered content. In this article we take a look at how information architecture underpins interactive, multi-layered storytelling, helping personalise and customise content for effective B2B marketing and sales.

Information architecture for effective B2B communications

In an increasingly busy world, effective information architecture helps make sense of complex information. The reverse is also true: even good content can fail if it is structured badly. In this article we shed light on the elements that underpin effective information architecture.
