The interactive computer platform and the exhibition arose from a research project led by Flavia Caviezel at the Institute of Research in Art and Design at the Academy of Art and Design FHNW. The research was carried out from December 2010 to September 2012 and was completed with an exhibition and an evaluation workshop by the end of 2012.
