Public Play Spaces

Interaction design work today is overly focussed on putting technology everywhere, ubiquitously, in our lives and spaces. We take the opportunity to reflect on, question and reexamine places, relationships and qualities for the design of technology in the public sphere. This requires that we ask different questions, apply new methods and try alternative means of prototyping possibilities. Operating on the fringes, our projects will be provocative and personal, challenging people to reflect, participate, and evolve.

'Public Play Spaces' is a platform for creative work exploring the playful, emotional and appropriate incorporation of technology into everyday public life.

Drawing on our combined background in art, architecture, game and interaction design, the work focuses on developing both innovative design methods and experimental prototypes for social interventions in public space.
