HELM is a concept project that focuses on societal and self-identity relations in the context of granular participation in political decision-making processes. The platform features a repository of political decisions history overview that displays the evolution of the self, society’s political views, and their relationship to one another over time. It allows users to introduce policies by providing funding or increasing their reach on social media platforms. The outcomes of previously evaluated policies, the distribution, and the direction of from people of what political views the support for a certain policy has come from are also visually represented. The most significant and interactive feature of the platform is allowing the user to participate in decision-making processes and see the progress of voting.
HELM prepares users to become better equipped to steer their way around the political realm they experience through the visualization of information.
