An interactive installation
The Final Synthesis course, focused on Speculative Design and death, concerned the conception, design and implementation of an interactive device
and the entire visual system that surrounds it, with the aim to make people reflect on death. Thus Micromort was born: a new currency which value
represents the price of death in every nation in the world, demonstrating that death has a social value that is closely linked to the nationality
and to the economic and humanitarian conditions of that nation. Death is always a tragedy. Whether 100 people die or 300,000. However, this cannot
and must not be a reason for the more developed countries to become disinterested in the current humanitarian tragedies, in favour of what touched
them personally 5, 10 or 20 years ago.
The interactive installation Thee Stock Exchange Experience consists of 16 screens, a touch-screen monitor and 8 metres in length of LED panels, displaying more than 21,000 facts about deaths and disasters in every country in the world from 2000 to 2017.
The 17th screen is a monitor-touch, placed on the fifth side, which allows an intimate and personal interaction - through a program based on a 3D globe - of the data presented by Micromort.
The brochure consists of three different tabs: the first contains general information about the project, the business card and the coin; the second is about the installation, and the third explains the algorithm behind it.
Micromort dealt with all those countries where there was no space for Covid: on the website there is a report comparing the price of death of nations in trouble with the real price of all Covid-19 protection and tracking devices.
