  • MFA thesis at Umeå Institute of Design, in collaboration with Umeå University Library and IDEO. The project looks at social navigation as a method for discovery and explores how the library could extend its reach and contribute to making urban life more playful and social. The BookNode concept creates a narrative around each library book and makes its journey tangible by visualizing its digital patina. The concept allows patrons to leave and pick up books around the city, thus influencing what books are made available where. http://sirijohansson.com/thesis/
