source Expanding Bodies: Art • Cities• Environment [Proceedings of the 27th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture / ISBN 978-0-9780978-6-8] Halifax (Nova Scotia) 1-7 October 2007, 262-267
summary This paper looks at the question of freedom and control in relation to the design of interactive media architecture projects for public spaces. It speculates on how designers of responsive systems must negotiate the relationship between their designs, the users’ participation and the protocols of existing public spaces. Using Stafford Beer’s formulation for a “liberty machine” it reflects on strategies for under-specifying such systems, to make them more adaptable to change. Questions that it poses include: How open should a system be? What role should public participation play in its instantiation? Who should maintain it? Who or what should control its objectives?
