What are Public Interactives? How can we use narratives to create interactive public spaces?

Wall Street Interactive is a location-based, audiobook experience that combines literature and physical locations.

This prototype featured Bartleby the Scrivener, a piece of literature that takes place on Wall Street. The story is broken up into different QR codes and are placed at specific locations that will relate to a certain excerpt from the story. The user will scan the QR code that will redirect them to a web page with the section of the audiobook, excerpt from the book, and a map that will lead the user to the rest of the QR codes, and to the rest of the story.

Process

The project follows a rapid prototyping process:

Sketched assets and roughly wireframed the experience

Took sketches to the next stage by creating individual QR codes and finalizing map with locations to place QR Codes

Coded application to the web to be accessed on mobile

Next Steps

Future iterations will include more literature pieces that are more closely related to specific locations and modifying the map to have just the next QR code rather than all of them at once.
