looking forward to participate a interaction with urban screenInteract only by pedestrians’ presence or movement without any portable device.Pattern of lighting would be changed by their movementit would be best if there are some interactive facility in places with high pedestrian flow but not on the main street. In places people usually get bored by waiting ( traffic light, bus stop, train station etc.)
Urban Screens – The Urbane Potential ofPublic Screens for InteractionMirjam StruppekA SOCIALIZING INTERACTIVE INSTALLATION FOR THE URBAN ENVIRONMENTSCarolina Briones, Ava Fatah gen.

AdvantageMost digital displays in urban space, currently dominated by commercial forces, can be broadened with cultural content.Interactivity and participation will bind the screens to the communal context of the space and thereby create local identityInteraction urban display in a social scenario can enrich the casual interaction of people nearby and this might enhance social awareness and engagement.
QuestionIf there are many people congregating in front of it trying to interact, how will the display response?The grid gallery is facing both the pedestrian path and roadway. Will the vehicles be part of the interaction?
QuestionIf the pattern of lighting changes too slightly, the visitors would perhaps only note that the lights changed when they passed by, but not understand the link between the way the light changed.If the brightness stays the same whole day, it would be too soft to be recognized during day time or too bright by night time.
