  • Based on several design concepts, we have simplified and made the interaction as well as the design easier to use for consumers. One challenge was to make the different mediums consistent, which we have solved with an established design and interaction standard. This has been done by putting more focus on actual content, which in combination with a dark background and less gradients is put in to focus.

    Methodologies for collection of data
    • Hardly no one walks in between the screen and the divider on the pavement. People are generally in a hurry during lunch, on their way to point a to b and don’t have much time put aside for “leisure”
    • Space between screen and divider is not much of a meeting ground, one person did stop to have a lunch resting his stuff on top of the divider
    • Although, when a ferry arrives, there’s so much people coming that people are forced to walk between screen and divider. Also, when it rains people tend to take shelter close to screen and walk in between as well. But more shelter on opposite street which could be why they walk on that side.
    • Night time : -Monday night crowded, people more relaxed, not walking as fast. and more intense car traffic -Saturday nigh not as much people, mostly groups -Building itself gets noticed more during night with it’s light installation

    • Some people did not want to try the interactive assignments
    • Standing to close
    • Standing to far away
    • People unaware of display standing in the way
    • Much more attention at night due to lighting effect
    • Unintended features - mother taking pictures of kids at night in front of screen
    • When screen fails, hard to know for user if it’s part of the installation or not

    Observations: During presentations of assignments for Smartslab
  • Website key principles Grounding Research Interviews
    • Purpose
    • Why do people allow for interruption in their every day life and take time to taste/listen/talk/buy?
    • Familiar scenarios in order to draw own conclusion:
    • -Telemarketing
    • -“Face to Face” sales
    • -Taste samples

    • Results
    • Extreme users where found through research of existing surveys

    • Ethnographic observation of social uses of a large, public, multi-touch display.
    • The main challenge was to support interactions for any user, from a child to a senior citizen, not requiring special skills or previous knowledge.
    • Social organization of the public space is, however, different from private settings (such as companies) and semi-public settings (such as conferences).
    • Use was slightly more active during the weekend and, in general , took place during the evenings after working hours.
    • Seeing people using the display served as an attractor for more users. people most often notice the wall when someone is using it . Visibility of the screen is not merely a sum of its physical properties
    • Unacquainted persons need a reason to enter face encounters with each other in public places
    • we should not look at architecture as an object, but as “interaction of space and events”

    “ It’s mine, don’t touch!” Research Papers 1 4 3 2
  • Website key principles Grounding Research Research Paper 2 “ Urban informatics is the study, design, and practice of urban experiences across different urban contexts that are created by new opportunities of real-time, ubiquitous technology and the augmentation that mediates the physical and digital layers of people networks and urban infrastructures. “ Providing first indications about characteristics of effective, motivation-specific design of comparative feedback on energy use for consumers with different motivation concerning energy conservation and comparison. The application was evaluated in personal, semi-structured interviews , which provided first insights on how to design motivation-related comparative feedback.   Energy-related feedback information is conveyed to a person through a visualisation device . Goal > socially mediated encouragement and competition.   Groups are important :The tendency to compare with someone decreases as the difference in their abilities or opinion increases meaningful one-on-one comparison may involve closely related people (e.g., friends, classmates, colleagues).   Motivating domestic energy conservation The relevance of the neighbours lies in the exposure to the same local weather conditions and the probable similarity of household type.   Experience also has influence on competition, whereby the experienced, competitive users were willing to participate in a challenge right away. The inexperienced, however, preferred to wait until they gain experience Research Papers 1 4 3 2

    • Final form and function is a crystallization of three main value:
    • -Playfulness
    • -Integration into the existing setting
    • -Eye - catching expression making evident to passers-by that something new was afoot.
    • Types of interactions:
    • -Discovering basic functionality
    • -Visual engagement
    • -Bodily engagement
    • The carpet mapping where to interact legitimized physical activity in urban space that would otherwise have been seen as downright strange and inappropriate.
    • the visuals of the installation , rather than the interaction form, architectural concerns, or social rela- tions, were the most immediate point of reference in making sense of the installation .
    • spectators clearly drew upon their repertoire of existing experiences with electronic media in order to understand what they were observing

    • Primary user is someone willing to make a short pause in their day to day routine, preferably in the afternoon when they are not travelling from point A to B where point B is defined as somewhere they need to be within a specific time limit
    • People passing by frequently could act as ambassadors introducing it to others
    • EnergyAustralia should also be taken into consideration because:
      • -They want people to become more conscious on energy consumption so they in turn can get a better spread of consumed energy and don’t have to build systems which will have to cater to extreme and rare peaks of use
      • -Technicians would change the artwork (Inmates are running the Asylum). They were afraid of putting up an art work with female breast so decided not and since no one else could access the area they got their way.

    • “ A user interface should be so simple that a beginner in an emergency can understand it within ten seconds .” (Ted Nelson)
    • Goal construction – a sustainable integration of media content in an urban context. Considering the relationship between technology, site and media content when designing a media façade can contribute to a change in perception of architecture and public space in the digital age – A system is not complete without it’s users
    • Use conventions established through existing similar technology to attract and engage users
    • Different zones of interaction would benefit grid gallery
    • Most of the interactions take place in different social groupings
    • =
    • Important with groups of people which seems to increase at night
    • Make the space more of a (environmental) meeting ground – benches, city maps, city bikes
