Welcome to the Neighbourhood is a Multimedia touch-screen project for virtual and real time exploration of the solar system sited in Millennium Square, Bristol.
The Space Signpost is a combination of sculpture and technology that helps people to explore the solar system (without leaving the surface of the Earth). The signpost points directly at objects in space, tracking them as they move across the sky, displaying their name and exact distance from your location on an electronic display. Close to the signpost is a touchscreen kiosk from which passers-by can select objects for the sign to point to. Users’ relationship with the cosmos is transformed through interaction with the installation. Kate was responsible for the Interface Design.
