Abstract:In 2015, all members of the United Nations adopted the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development. A total of seventeen goals were created that should provide peace and prosperity for people and the planet. However, concerns have been raised about whether these sustainable goals can be achieve by 2030. To create more awareness about the Sustainable Development Goals, a physical representation of data, in short physicalization, was made. A design process was developed to structure the phases that were followed in this graduation project. The phases that were followed were 1. Ideation, 2. Specification, 3. Realization and 4. Evaluation. Based on the ideation, a physicalization was made that uses vibration and temperature as modalities to convey information. For a physicalization to be useful, it’s efficiency, effectiveness and enjoyability was evaluated. Overall the use of vibration and temperature was perceived enjoyable. Both the modalities were efficient, however, where vibration as modality was also effective, temperature did not appear to be an effective modality to convey information.
