Memnun Oldum (EN: Nice to meet you) is an interactive installation that shows the influence of an individual on a group. In the Middle Eastern society people are more open to intermingle and therefore the social groups are highly dynamic. Memnun Oldum makes these dynamics visual by creating colored drops per visitor. The drops fall and land in a dish below, one by one. Slowly they form a larger group but each individual leaves a trace behind.
The interactive installation has been presented at METU Ankara, the Dutch Technology Week and the Dutch Design Week in 2012. The installation evoked many interesting discussions on cultural differences during these exhibits. And, albeit for a brief moment, it let people evaluate their own perspective towards those cultural differences.
