Stories of Exile: Hyperlocal Media Architecture in Contested Spaces 2018 / Publications

The current global refugee crisis creates novel opportunities for technology to support interaction between refugees and members of their host communities. In this paper, we describe the design and evaluation of Stories of Exile, an interactive media architecture installation that depicted the displacement of refugees onto the facade of a refugee shelter. We report on the involvement of refugees in a participatory design process and the subsequent in-the-wild field study.

Our analysis provides insight into the qualities of hyperlocal media architecture, in terms of (a) inviting community participation, (b) displaying compelling and socially relevant narratives, and (c) stimulating dialogue between communities.
