A Work With Children

Before opening of exhibition, in our office, we had a lot of
workshop with children. It was twice a week. We provide also pizza, drinks and snacks for children, to make them fully motivated. The aim of the workshop is to collect information about ‘local people about construction of new bridge’ and also collecting students’ own ideas about new bridge. In all workshops, they were happy and I think they are all great team-players.

I could not attend all of the workshops because of my German course or I attend late. Children divided into groups, we prepared microphone and recording devices for them, and they made a lot of interviews about ‘new bridge ideas for Landsberg’ with local people. The other groups stayed in the office and talked each other or played games.

Sometimes the weather was not good, sometimes it was sunny, some of the students were quite shy, some of them were brave to make interview but they are all motivated and happy in all conditions. After they completed all of the interviews, they prepared their own ideas for new bridge. They painted it on a papers that we gave, and took a little notes. The ideas of the children were too creative and some of them were really logical that made me surprised. We collected all of these paintings to prepare them for our exhibition. With all children we took a photo and distributed our exhibition’s poster to the shops in Landsberg. I helped some children to write information of their paintings in German language.

I found that the students are all great team- member and they have logical opinions about everything. Also they are all friendly and funny, sometimes they made us tired but it is normal. I had a good relationship with the students, I tried to speak with them mostly in German but when we stuck, they all have good English knowledge, we spoke in English. It improved me a lot also the pizzas were delicious.

Ausflug in die BMW Welt

Trip to the BMW World

In March we made an exciting trip to Munich with our workshop participants to visit the BMW World. We travelled by train and subway to a place full of stories and history and to experience the history of a global brand. to experience visions for tomorrow and the future of mobility. What could be better suited to our theme, we found. The young people were immediately involved when we made the suggestion and were already looking forward to this special day.

When we arrived, the spectacular architecture of BMW Welt was already inspiring us from the outside – it looks futuristic and impressive. It arouses curiosity about the universe of future mobility, and we were already looking forward to seeing what lies behind it.

But before we took a closer look, we first had an appointment. Because we booked a research workshop for our young people, where they could go on a great journey of discovery. The three topics were mobility, sustainability and globality. After a quiz, they were able to work in teams at various stations to become real young engineers – test, try out and develop. They had a lot of fun and worked well together as a team.

After following in the footsteps of the BMW developers, we were able to take a look at the inner workings of building the future. Here we were presented with the latest BMW luxury models, an exhibition of the BMW Group that showed us important business topics, such as the mobility of tomorrow. We learned that BMW i stands for the future of mobility like no other BMW Group brand – through visionary vehicle concepts and mobility services, inspiring design and a consistent focus on sustainability. We got to know the small, cute MINI and the big, proud and very luxurious Rolls-Roye. And we learned that the company’s first vehicle was a motorcycle, the BMW R32 from 1923. The variety of today’s models was right there at BMW Welt – traditional engineering skills and innovative technology were combined here.

In the midst of all these pioneering vehicles, we had a photo and film session with our young people. Of course, not without first discussing this with BMW corporate communications. For this, the students took on the role of BMW engineers, who present a new development and are interviewed about it. And so it came about that the young people were able to present their own sketches on the topic of mobility of the future – at least for our photos and video shoots – right in the middle of the BMW World. Beautiful shots were taken as the works were of course presented once again from a very special perspective.

Full of impressions, but also a little tired, we drove back to Landsberg. It was a fulfilled day. And our young people were all there with great enthusiasm and enthusiasm. We can do something like that again, was the tenor. We will, for sure!

Mobility concepts for the future

Fliang 2019 – Mobility concepts for the future

Following on from our paper airplane competition last year, our current youth workshops also deal with the topic of “flying” in the broadest sense. The children show us how they imagine mobility in the future. Really great futuristic possibilities have been created that show us how traffic in cities could perhaps soon be handled. And with what spectacular flight or driving models one will be able to move around.

Whether teleporters, flying skateboards, electric scooters that can be operated via mobile phone: There are always new and ever more imaginative ideas, some still a little vague, others already very precise and mature. Whether this is realistic and whether it would be feasible at some point is not important.

After all, Alois Wolfmüller couldn’t imagine back then that there would actually be airplanes, and above all, in what form and to what extent people fly nowadays. Nevertheless, he thought about flight models, put them down on paper and developed them.

And he never doubted his ideas. When it comes to visions, nothing should stop you. Because only if there are people with imagination, imagination, visions and a strong will, something can move forward, things can be created new.

Fliàng – of flying shoes and teleporters

Fliàng – of flying shoes and teleporters

In our workshop “Fliàng 2019” we develop mobility concepts of the future together with pupils of the Landsberg secondary school. There are no limits to the imagination. Very futuristic, imaginative, creative and adventurous concepts have been successfully developed. We would like to introduce them briefly:

Carina has the idea of a teleporter: “In Landsberg there are several stations for teleporters, one of them is located at the Bayertor. You can go into the teleporter for just one euro, enter your destination address – and you’re there. Who wouldn’t wish for such a thing?

Jenny shows us her ideas of flying shoes and a city bus with a built-in whirlpool that people can use during their bus ride. She is particularly fond of flying shoes: “Just put the shoes on and take off. That would be so great,” she enthuses.

Hamad sees flying wheelchairs, teleporters and robots in the city of the future. “The robots carry the heavy school supplies – satchels, gym bags, etc. – for us students on our way to school,” she explains, imagining it to be quite pleasant. Even when she thinks of all the other things the robots could do… “for example, activities that are actually quite annoying.

For Ivan, the roads of the future are conveyor belts. Cars will no longer have to drive, pedestrians will no longer have to walk, because they will move on conveyor belts. But the disadvantage of this actually practical idea is: there is less nature, fewer trees and parks. Because the conveyor belts simply need space.

In Luca’s vision of the future, roads are no longer used at all. There are underground tunnels that run on electromagnetic trains. You can stop and get off every ten meters – so you can get to any place you want without having to change trains or walk long distances.

Sophia, on the other hand, also sees a piece of the past in the future. There are carriages as a means of transport again. Just like in the past, they are driven by horses. However, there are now – optionally open or closed – bus stops for horses.

Jeremy’s electric bus is a very special bus – a double-decker bus, in the upper part of which you can sleep. The dashboard is fully digitalized, including voice control and fully automatic transmission. “This electric bus is designed to bundle trips and thus reduce individual trips,” he explains. He is already thinking in fairly economical and ecological terms.

Many great ideas, three of which we would like to take a closer look at and make something of in different groups with different design possibilities: Comics with a preceding storyboard, an accident report about an air collision between a (flying) car and an electric scooter and a marketing strategy for the carriage of the future. So we get deeper into the matter. And we are all very curious to see what will come of it.

Giant wings of cable ties

Giant wings of cable ties

Parallel to our paper airplane workshop, our workshop leader Renate has prepared an “object for all”. We are building a six-meter replica of a wing model, she said.  No sooner said than done. Anyone who was interested could take part and create an impressive grand piano from about 12,000 cable ties.
 
And so on both workshop days from morning till late at night, we tied, pulled, loosened and reattached. With changing tinkerers, some only for a short time, some who lasted very long. A laborious, but also grounding and relaxing work, in which a great cohesion of all participants was created. Alone through the sheer will to be able to complete the object by the end of the project. And that it was actually completed in the short time available – each and every one of us made his or her contribution.
 
The completion was not so easy, because our 10,000 cable ties ran out and we had to buy 2,000 more as soon as possible. And also with these it became already again scarce. Hard to believe how many cable ties fit into the inner wire of the wing.
 
But we did it, and on Sunday afternoon we installed our replica of the Wolfmüller wing model on Hellmairplatz as part of a major ballooning campaign. Everybody who wanted was allowed to decorate the balloons with a message or a drawing. Afterwards we let them all rise into the air together. A really fascinating and contentwise well fitting finale for a very beautiful and loving project.
 
 
 

Fliáng – let´s go!

It starts!

Edmund Epple and Wolfgang Hauck start the first paper planes …

TAMAM – Making Of: The Thing with the Dry Ice

Our Fotocomic on the problem of a group of young people from different nations – with little change in the bag – to get food, has a curious resolution.

In order to make the mysterious transformation of the paper pizza from the Foodomats into a really real and edible pizza even more spectacular, we wanted to “conceal” exactly this process – namely the transformation – for the photos in steam and fog. To make the spell even clearer. To make it even more mysterious. Therefore, our consultant Conny, who works as a photographer, had the idea to work with dry ice.

Dry ice is solid carbon dioxide (CO2), which sublimates under normal pressure at -78.48 ° C, ie passes directly into the gas phase, without first melting. Dry ice is produced by depressurizing liquefied carbon dioxide under pressure. Part of the carbon dioxide vaporizes and removes the heat required for evaporation from the rest of the carbon dioxide, which cools it down. The result is so-called frozen carbonic acid snow. This is then, depending on the application, pressed into the desired shape.

The implementation of our idea was unfortunately not possible. First of all, it is obviously an art in itself to find a dry ice dealer nearby. After extensive research, our consultant Conny has made a find – in Igling. Unfortunately that did not help, we were unlucky. Exactly in our project period, the entire southern Germany area was affected by delivery problems with dry ice. The reason: Suppliers had problems with the carbon dioxide. We could have gone to Hamburg, because in northern Germany these problems did not exist – but of course this is somewhat absurd for the transport of dry ice.

So, with a heavy heart, we said goodbye to our idea of ​​making pizza disappear in mysterious steam. Nevertheless: Our Fotocomic has become so great – a funny story with a surreal end. Even without dry ice, fog and steam.

TAMAM – Making Of: How the automatic machine turns into a foodomat

Our poor, hungry, but unfortunately dangling youngsters are desperate: But they have the saving idea: Food from the machine … from the Landsberger Foodmaten, which they come across at the hospital. Here they are pulling food out of the machine – in a box, similar to a pack of cigarettes. The food is in paper form in this box and, as we will see later, can actually be made edible.

In fact, the food tomatoes are not available in Landsberg. But there is the art machine. The Landsberg Art Machine is a converted old cigarette vending machine, from which you can “pull” an original piece of art for five euros. From well-known and unknown artists – originals, signed and numbered.

For our purposes and our comic, of course, we had to transform it. It’s possible with Photoshop, but it was quite expensive. Jannis and Nico were incredibly fit and during a project afternoon spared no effort to produce the food tomato, from which you could finally pull pizza, roast pork and spaghetti … However, in a somewhat strange appearing appearance. Which, of course, poses new challenges.

TAMAM – More photo comics!

Our media project TAMAM with refugees is going into the next rounds. The principle is the same: young adult refugees between the ages of 18 and 26 from Syria, Somalia, Eritrea and Iraq are being introduced to media technology. Once again, they receive excellent support from committed students of the IKG, who provide them with important mentoring assistance.

This time, we want to delve deeper into the creation of photo comics. This means inventing stories, taking photos, creating storyboards, importing pictures into the comic program, and thinking through texts for the comics.

The first topic that we wanted to tackle together is: Food / Nutrition. How did we come to this? Because we cooked and ate together internationally at the start of the project. Hence the idea to create a comic about hunger and food.

Spectacular ideas have come to light. The one that was eventually carried out: an adventurous story of a group of young people of various nationalities, who – unfortunately with little change in their pockets – go in search of delicious food, if possible in a restaurant. But with too little money that can be quite frustrating.

The solution: the Landsberger “Foodomat”. A cigarette-like looking box from which you can actually draw delicious dishes such as pizza, pork roast or pasta for money. But how is that supposed to work? What do the foods look like? A pizza in the form of a folded piece of paper, on which a pizza is printed, from a pack of cigarettes? That can not be edible?

Do not give up is the motto. The fact that the group of young people is successful and that in the end a real pizza is actually on the plate – this is the result of the resulting photo comic. Mystical, spooky, a bit weird … you can be curious!
