A while back we mentioned the London design agencies Berg and Dentsu and their use of the iPad for 3D light-painting. Since then they’ve put together an interesting study of media surfaces and their possible uses. This relates to Pathway #2 that will be discussed at the MEX event on 30 Nov – 01 Dec 2010, on using multiple screens in a mobile device.
The first video looks at incidental media on everyday surfaces, perhaps suggesting some of the passive content that might be displayed on a secondary mobile screen.
The second video investigates the media surfaces that are encountered on a train journey, demonstrating how content on media surfaces might relate to its context of consumption.
