Magic Windows

Research Supervisor

We are interested in collaborative story experiences which can acccommodate a large, widely dispersed society of audience that is connected through widely differeing devices, each with its own characteristic bandwidth.

Public spaces -- hallways, retail shop windows, subways -- provide potential venues for "magic windows" - windows which sense and react to audience presence. Scripted in Isis, a current experiment highlights the potential for retail spaces

"Magic Windows" is created with Isis, a stream-based multimedia scripting and playout environment by Stefan Agamanolis.
