Hello there

as a keen readers of your blog, we thought you might be interested in a
recent project that my team have recently written up, which also includes some little embedded documentary videos.

‘Lichen Ohms Seriatim offered a site-responsive installation involving
spoken word texts, music, and photographs conveyed through a dialogue
between Bluetooth beacons and Raspberry Pis with screens and headphones.’

From ludions:

The project’s technology enabled an immersive individual digital environment which responded to each audience member’s position in the chapel. A number of technologies were tried: GPS is an obvious candidate for location-based information and had been used by members of the team for other projects. However it is suitable only for outdoor use, and would not have allowed multiple ‘trigger points’ within the indoor installation space. Bluetooth beacons are more suitable for indoor location tracking –Apple’s iBeacon technology is one example of this. iBeacons however do not use an open protocol; their use would have forced the project to be based on iOS devices which, for a number of reasons, would have been inappropriate.
