City Experiences

Telecommunications technologies have revolutionized everyday life from mobile phones through the systems such as the video telepresence environment. In order to illustrate the potential for telecommunications to the wider public we will invite an artist to create an exhibit based around multi-touch surfaces located at museums in Athens and Luxembourg. Their brief will be to create a system that uses (1) a table top interaction (2) a vertical touch or non-touch based projection screen. The system must support (a) multiple users at each site and across locations (b) the tracking of real and virtual objects on the tables (c) the ability for people at both sites to jointly interact with the content they are co-creating. By involving the artistic community in the design process we will encourage them to consider the adoption of the project technologies. For the museums it will represent a near-free attraction for them and will act as a draw for attendees
