IED also organises teaching projects and traineeships and has signed more than 500 agreements with companies worldwide.
The IED network showcases two projects that mix data analysis, creativity and interactivity.
MixCities is an immersive Virtual Reality experience that will take you on an informative and imaginative audiovisual journey through Rome, Milan, Barcelona, and Madrid.
Travel to these cities to discover them by interacting between the themes of People, Earth and Identity and get Data Information decoded through colors and sounds and explore their singularities. You can navigate this WebVR experience with a mouse and cardboard glasses for a more immersive journey.
The project has been created by Master in Design for Virtual Reality students of IED Barcelona and BA in Sound Design alumni of IED Milan.
With the rise of digital communication and technology innovation in the year 2020, we are already entering the path of 4th Industrial Revolution where it describes the exponential changes to the way we live, work and relate to one another due to the adoption of cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things and the Internet of Systems. But when this actual revolution will be completed? Is it in 5, 10 ,15 or 20 years from now?
2020+20 will take you to imagine and wonder of what might happen and change in the further future by connecting the prophecy of Lunar Trifecta phenomenon (Super Blood Blue Moon) that only happens every +20 years which stated that it will be the sign of the end of times and start of a new beginning hence the phenomenon triggered the site to perceive in +20 years will be the completion of the 4th revolution and the world is changing.
Powered by IED Innovation Labs and created by IED Barcelona Master Interaction Design students for Sonar +D the site will heavily project the vision and perception of the completed 4th revolution or foreseeable future in the fields that IED and Sonar+D community stands for which are Art & Design, Music, Fashion, Cinema, and Education.
