Abstract

The rapid densification of urban areas around the world offers exciting opportunities for new place-based artworks and loca-tive media that aim at engaging, informing and entertaining members of local communities. In this paper, we introduce a design competition for concepts of interaction design which display visual evidence of connectivity in a master-planned community. This competition is based in and focuses on one of Brisbane's newly built inner urban renewal developments. Furthermore, we introduce the conceptual interaction design of one of the competition's winning entries, as well as its potential and its challenges to engage local residents in participation and exploration of place-based information and community media.
