Developing a Neighbourhood Locative Media Toolkit

SPEAKER: Katharine Willis, University of Plymouth, UK.

Paper Session 4: Case Studies
16:00 - 17:00, Saturday, 17 November 2012.

We describe the development of a toolkit using locative media and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies as an approach to enabling neighbourhoods to engage with their local built and social environment. We address how the local community informed the concept, development and presentation of the projects through a series of public consultation workshops and events where neighbourhood residents were invited to trial the projects. The paper describes and documents work in progress.
