Screens in the Wild

Screens in the Wild is a collaborative project initiated by researchers from the Space Group at University College London and the Mixed Reality Lab at University of Nottingham. It investigates how media screens located in urban space can be designed to benefit public life, rather than merely transmit commercial content.

The project is building a series of architectural interfaces in East London and Nottingham neighbourhoods, which use broadcast media and interactive technologies to enhance real world connections, add value to the daily experience of the urban environment, foster community participation and ownership of the urban space. In this project we are seeking to involve local organisations and residents as key partners in the creative development process.

 

It is one of our favourite projects out of the current Research in the Wild themes, The Screens in the Wild team includes: makers, architects, HCI designers, computer scientists, anthropologists, developers, artists and curators.
