DESIGN ITERATIONS – Weymouth house Processing final idea updated.

I have decided to take a slightly different direction for my interaction idea, But I have kept some of the basic concepts the same for example. an interaction where the user can be connected to world from one place (a small room) also how the media can help the user to feel that they have got total control of the world from just one place. I have decided to change a small idea of where the media world is on a blank screen on a canvas and that is gives the user a more free feeling that they can access anywhere in a room also i have decided to alter what refers to the user a box on the screen. what have i done is changed the blank canvas into the global atlas and the rectangle box that represents the user  i have made it into a 25% transparent.

The reason why i have changed blank screen into a global map is because i believe that the map will give the user a more basic  understanding of the Interaction is trying to portray to the audience, it will grab their attention much more easier. also i have made the rectangle box transparent so wherever or which country/county the user decided to step into will be transparent and the user  can see where they are locating them selves. I believe that this idea will link massively towards my brief and most of all my media theory (media space) as the interaction it self create it own idea of mediated space, for example it tells the user  that they can travel around the world form just one space like walking around a room and locating every part of the world. this gives a relation of how powerful and how much of an impact that the social has got towards the world of people who are in  poverty. believe that this  interaction will give the people/user who are interacting that they are navigating across the world. and it would be as a game for  many people /user as they will get drawn from the camera picking  up their movements.

The image above is was my first main idea for the interaction. on the left rectangle box is smaller this happens when the user is further away from the camera and as the user gets closer to the camera the bigger rectangle expand.

The rough sketch about is an idea of how my audience/user will be interacting with the processing interaction. as you can see in the first image on the left the further away that the user’s away form the camera  the smaller that box on the screen gets, and the box will track the movement of the user as if they were exploring the world. also in the third sketch it illustrate  the that the closer they user/audience approach the camera the bigger the rectangle will appear.  You can see that i have made the colour in the rectangle transparent so the part part of the world that they are exploring.
