The Project

(Hyper Interaction within Physical Space)

1997-2000

A tourist audio guide that minimises the boundary between the physical space and the related information using the movement of the visitor as mediator. The visitor is immersed in a responsive audio information space, which is aware of the user’s behaviour and proximity to objects of interest. The information the user receives needs to be tailored in response to these inputs, and delivered in such a way as be a seamless part of their cultural experience.

The tourist guide assumes the role of a travelling companion that tells stories about what the visitor looks at, without requiring any explicit intervention for accessing information.
