Shadowgram as creative catalyst

In the context of the “11th European Symposium on Paediatric Cochlear Implantation” (ESPCI 2013) in Istanbul, MED-EL introduced the new audio processor RONDO to the public.

The participants of the symposium were asked to create onomatopoeia and to communicate them via Shadowgram on a topic wall.

Shadowgram is an innovative form of so-called social brainstorming. First, participants are individually photographed before an illuminated wall. Each resulting silhouette image is then printed out as a sticker that, with an accompanying speech balloon (which can contain personal thoughts and opinions on any particular subject), is affixed to a map. In this way, the silhouettes and speech balloons make a loud and clear statement about current opinions and trends.
