Lecture 8 Architecture and Immersion

This week’s lecture shifts our focus to how we experience space. When we walk around a new building, we explore the interior spaces with our senses, we may chance upon entrances and exits, we may be guided by passages and corridors, we experience built spaces intuitively.  Architecture is movement in space and passage through time and there are no still moments. Inhabiting within architecture is a designed experience – it can be immersive.

What can we learn from architecture that can be transposed to creating meaningful and affective experiences using media technologies? In interactive online medium, how do we provide users with confidence  whilst navigating these intangible spaces. How do we engage an audience intuitively in an installation work?
