Leeds Artspace Online project might be worth a mention. Users are sending in images via mobiles to contribute to an ArtWall.
A colleague recently told me about innovative use of QR codes at Chateau de Vincennes in France. They placed QR codes around a room which had not yet been restored and provided visitors with a device equipped with an 8" screen, a camera and QR code reader. When you pointed the camera at a QR code it showed what a particular part of the room would have looked like in medieval times e.g. showed a tapestry hanging on the wall, or a fire in the fireplace. Unfortunately it was something they were only doing for a day, and there doesn't seem to be any mention of it on their website.
Design of PDA interface should reflect standard website or digital design conventions.
Visitors want to be in control of the PDA so don’t make anything happen automatically; allow them to stop and start commentaries
Choices made need to be accompanied by visual or audio feedback
Visitors’ experience of using the PDA needs to merge successfully with their experience in the gallery. For eg device tells visitor to look from the screen to the artwork; they need to be able to find the artworks easily
A choice of small chunks of information is better than lengthy commentaries
Video clips of artists at work
Audio contributions by artists and other commentators
Mobile Blog sent at 11:27 9 months ago by geoff_118 We are at the home phu touy replication p.o.w. camp where they have rebuilt a hospital, complete with apparatus, a cookhouse, a water distillary and several genuine artifacts such as medical apparatus and tools! However, one doesn't really feel the same sense of awe and sadness as one does on the site of a genuine historical event... For example, this morning at hellfire pass, in picturing people digging and dying in the very chasm in which we were standing, the whole place felt strangely eerie, as though, and i know this sounds really cheesey, we could feel those p.o.w's presence... Strange!! So, yeah, its been good to visit this replica p.o.w. camp but it doesn't quite capture the essence of what it was really like... It seems, well, fake!!
