As part of the Sprout Talent Week Vanessa mentored participants of the Sensing the City Lab, and then judged the entries alongside Christian Bason (Director, Danish Design Centre), Martin Manthorpe (Senior Vice President, NCC), Pelle Lind Bournonville (Chief of Projects, Realdania), Henrik Jeppesen (Director, Attention Group), and Johan Bichel Lindegaard (Artist, Illutron).
During the first day, Vanessa & Johan taught skills in design thinking and had the participants create initial prototypes on their ideas of how to utilize the data from the Dome of Visions into an engaging, interactive installation which demonstrated both the data from the dome and correlated it to happenings in the real world.

The Sensing the City lab will hopefully be continued as an ongoing event in years to come and created further ties with our collaborators, Danish Design Center and Attention, as well as making some new friends at Realdania.
