Motivation is the energy which inspires us to do or to change something. To sustain motivation, effort and joy need to be balanced. The installation Zigarettenpause works as a bridge to find a personal motivation plan to quit smoking. The user activates the machine with inserting and lighting a cigarette. While the installation is smoking the cigarette, it unlocks the interface for the duration of this one cigarette.
During this time the user can browse and create a personal plan of actions, based on the time the user would usually spend with smoking. The collection contains a diverse range of activities inspired by the book "Change the World For A Fiver". If the cigarette is smoked, the interface becomes unavailable and requests the be activated again.
