Ratkaisu is an interactive virtual 3D sculpture exploring how unique our decisions actually are, how they can be influenced, what are our biases, and to what extent free will is an illusion. Ratkaisu attempts to employ tricks used by advertisers, politicians and magicians, and explores the use of those tricks to manipulate the decision making process.
The sculpture begins as a simple shape of raw material with no remarkable form, color or behavior. Participants make a number of decisions on their mobile devices to collectively shape and interact with the sculpture. What will the final look and behavior reveal about you?
