An interactive large-scale projection, representing audio-visually the real-time interactions between places of spontaneous human traffic and their visitors. It is conceptualized as a Media Façade design case conceived to support emotional links between shared spaces of spontaneous human traffic and their visitors. This design case investigates how the links between people and places can be mediated by abstract audio-visual representations of people’s presence and activity staged in a shared environment.

Ongoing PhD research project.

When: 2009
Who: Nina Valkanova, illustration by Stiliana Mitzeva. With the collaboration of Andrea Rosales, David Peñuela, Emilio Sacco.
Where: Interactive Technologies Group, University Pompeu Fabra

We extended the design to adapt it to the open inner space of the Department of Communication and Information Technologies.

The color of the animated representation changes according to the floor where visitors are detected. In this way theVisitors installation turns to a Large Scale Social Visualization of peoples presence and movement in the whole building. Video of the visualization integrated in the space available here: theVisitors extended design.
