I'm a Digital Media Specialist at The University of Melbourne and Science Gallery Melbourne. I have a passion for prototyping, engineering, deploying and evaluating technology in public space. Together with citizens, I transform neighborhoods into dynamic kitchens for cooking up social and situated technologies that solve contextual challenges and highlight local qualities.
This talk, held by invitation of a national association of public communication, introduced communication experts from federal and local government as well as public institutions to public displays as a novel way of communicating with citizens. Relevant studies that discuss content on public displays, interactivity, urban and architectural integration, and deployment methodology were introduced, in addition to the specific recommendations for deploying public displays, as described in Handbook Screens in Public Space.
