"Our Bodies, Our Voices" – We expect more from our media. Media must see more than my eye and my tapping finger, it should see the richness of my expressions. It should recognize you and I, alone and together. We are active, exploring, playing, learning beings. How might these qualities be nurtured in our everyday lives, in our public parks, and city squares? Through a series of projects spanning types of interaction, size, and place, there are patterns revealed around designing for groups and for our bodies. In contrast with screen-based work, the works emphasize scale, place, reach, and levels of physical interaction.
