Abstract

In this paper we discuss the interactive installation, ‘TxT Book Roskilde’, which appeared as part of the Roskilde Festival in 2007. The installation consisted of a user-generated collaborative story projected on to the side of one of the event marquees to which festival goers could contribute via their mobile phones. This type of event invariably presents a number of challenges both in terms of design and deployment of the installation and in this paper a number of the major issues are discussed together with the experience at the festival which inevitably included a great deal of mud as Roskilde Festival 2007 was officially the wettest ever!
