"Interactive Masterpiece in the Aarhus Festival"
The semacode based mobile platform developed in the Center for Interactive Spaces was used as the basis for the AudioMove drama “Korridor”. Korridor was written and performed by the theater Katapult during the 2007 Århus Festuge. In the play the audience was equipped with mobile phones and headsets and sent out into the streets of Aarhus where they would scan tags, listen to the play, receive sms messages and phone calls and encounter real life actors. The play received nice reviews in the press. Mikkel Ottow from MetroXpress gave if 5 out of 6 stars and wrote:
“An interactive masterpiece: The play demonstrated a well-working, simple and impressive interactive technology which have not been seen in Denmark before.” [more]

Tagging the City
During the 2007 Aarhus Festival (Aarhus Festuge) which ran from August 31st to September 9th, the Center for Interactive Spaces demonstrated a mobile blogging system based around 2D-barcodes. The mobile system supported information from the Aarhus Festival’s CMS to be linked to visual tags placed at specific places in the city of Aarhus, so users could receive updated, location-based information on their mobile phones simply by scanning the tags. Each tag also had an associated Weblog so users could easily leave their impression or photos and videos on the tag or read blog entries from other users. The blog functionality was built into the mobile application so everything could be done while in the city. Links within. [more]
