· Valby Library is not just a library, the building also hold the Citizen Service centre. This means that a lot of people come into the library, draw a number and start waiting for their turn. Therefore a crowd of waiting citizens block the entrance to the library, for themselves AND for the users who are actually there for the books.
This board shows activities of Copenhagen libraries by LED blinking. Blinking probability is based on statistics of libraries activities that means the more active the library is the more blinking it has. Statistics are in the tabel which shows the activities for months January to August of 2014.

This is a project I did on Fabcreation, in Fablab Copenhagen for Valby Library.
The library is in lack of seating space. and have horribly boring exhibition-shelves... so I figured I would combine those two into one fun, colourful and comfortable furniture.
These amazing reading blinds will help you focus, sharpen and transform your very existence, by granting the user FULL suspension of disbelief it allows the ocean of your wandering mind to become tame like a river.

-Valby library is divided into a number of sections. Users of the library have problems finding their way to these sections
- building an interactive map of Valby library
(five buttons - one for each of the sections in the library. Each button press activates lightning up of the corresponding area on the map showing the way to reach the section of interest)
- lasercut box (Boxmaker extension for Inkscape)
- Arduino controlled lighting (extended Analog Sketch and LEDs)
The project aims to produce an initial working prototype of an animated sign for the book shelves into the kids section in the Valby library (Copenhagen, Denmark).
The prototype will serve to show the potential of having interactive signs in the room because it can improve the kids overall experience of visiting the room and selecting books by visualizing the theme providing them a funny and useful interaction.
The idea is to make a portable studycloset, with a small desk and lamp on the inside, and bookshelves on the outside. The studycloset will be a space for students that want to focus, and not be disturbed. The closetdoors makes a space. The library has limited space, and that is why I want to make the studycloset portable, and make it more useful with bookshelves on the outside.
I start out with designing a prototype in Inkscape, that I make with the lazercutter in cardboard.
