Abstract

In recent years, there has been much interest in the potential for situated displays to support sense of community. In this chapter, we describe our experiences of two significant situated display-based deployments which explore some of the issues that arise when such systems are used on a day to day basis. The first deployment described is that of the Hermes system which has been deployed and evaluated in both a University department and a domestic home setting. The second deployment is the Wray photo display which has been deployed in two locations in a rural village located in the north of England. Both deployments made strong use of user-centered design and have benefitted from longitudinal evaluation in order to provide key insights into issues of adoption and appropriation
