  • University of Queensland, 2006.This Interaction Design Honours Course project attempted to create a physical model that allowed people to select town functions via the movable phicons, insert them into street intersections in the model, and the display would then show and rotate the street intersection AND where the function is in the panoramic photo. The round table could also rotate, and the rotation controlled the displayed panorama. Presented at CAADRIA 2007.

Play and and answer questions 2.Play and classroom discuss authenticity 3.Role-play with games, puppets, or narrators 4.Mod cities, empires events based on theories 5.Film events etc. using machinima tools 6.Combine images or panoramas with other media 7. Design past artefacts, events, rituals or customs 8.Create VEs using games and game mods or using VR What is the Cultural Significance and Contextual Fragility?
