- Indiana University (Bloomington, IN)
- Ph.D. project (co-creator)
Problem: Our school had students and faculty spread out across campus. We needed a way to share information with everyone and at the same time help them feel connected.
- Brainstormed/sketched the design of the system
- Observed the environment in which it was placed
- Created a series of wireframes/experiments comparing the experience of various sounds and animations
- Introduced a living prototype to our community
- Evaluated through surveys, interviews, and observation
This was an interactive wireframe we created to get a sense of the density of information, the animation speed, and the sound element of the system.
Solution: Our design used Twitter data displayed on public monitors in our school’s building with a slow animation of tweets across the screen.
This is an example image of the working system. The real system is no longer pulling data from Twitter due to changes in the API.
Outcomes: The Twitterspace display was deployed for our school as well as 3 academic conferences and 3 other organizations.
