CubeBrowser is a six-sided digital, display cube that connects to online databases like Flickr.com. You’re able to move through thousands of image-sets by turning and shaking the small cube in space. The pictures are grouped by tags. Horizontal turns change images, while vertical turns change to other tag sets. CubeBrowser unfolds an awe-inspiring trip through the hidden realms of online databases and provides a unique way of navigating by tag associations.
The control is accomplished by performing manual actions on the object, which creates a playful way of discovering image collections. Ludwig Zeller finished the CubeBrowser as his diploma thesis in “Audiovisual Media” at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne.
