A Tale of Two Tombs
by Jose Ledon, Ruedee Sarawutpaiboon, Sotiris Kotronias
The report is about the project of an interactive installation that was made for the Experience prototype course in Umea Institute of Design by Jose Ledon, Rueedee Sarawutpaiboon and Sotiris Kotronias. The two main challenges for the project were firstly to follow the brief that was given and secondly to fit in the environment of the Halloween Party that was organized that period by the students in the school and was supposed to host the installation.
Due to the brief it was necessary to focus on the magic aspect of wireless and mobile connectivity. But building wireless projects, within a frame of very tight time and budget, can be demanding. At some point it is necessary to compromise and simplify your ideas or even fake the wireless functions.
It was also necessary to talk with the organizers of the party in order to figure out realize where the installation will fit better in the space that would host the party.
