Chit chat club: Bridging virtual and physical space for social interaction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In this work, we create an audio-video link via an interactive sculpture to facilitate casual, sociable communication between two remote spaces. This communication installation was designed to blend the benefits of online interaction such as low risk interaction, lower barriers to entry, and minimized geographical constraints with the ease and the affordances of interacting and signalling in physical space. We describe the creation and the iterative design process for creating a social virtual-physical hybrid space-interface we call the Chit Chat Club. In describing our design decisions, we note the advantages and disadvantages of two Chit Chat Club installations and their effect on interaction.
