8th semester
3 week school project
spring-10
brief: A COGNITIVE
ARTEFACT FOR KIDS
DISPLAYING WHY WE
SHOULD CARE FOR OUR
TEETH, collaboration with
Alex, Freya and Carina
Wihlborg

"Tandliv" is a computer game concept where you play as a tooth and meet daily challenges. You see how that affects you as a tooth and how you can survive and protect yourself.

What started out as a collaboration with a dentist ended up being a close collaboration with
Alexandra, my 6 year old niece. Alex turned out to be an exceptional partner to work with. She hates to brush her teeth and thinks it is a total waste of time. We found new interesting ways of working together and how to communicate.
