I quickly recorded this response just to let Alan know to be alert as he continues his mission to find the Centre of the Internet.
Alan, if you’re reading this, please let me know that you’ve planned a safe and secure transportation for your journey to Australia. You may need to use alternate forms of communication, super-duper encryption or an alternate identity to avoid detection and guarantee your safe passage.
Wow, I’ve just finished watching the mysterious and somewhat disturbing ‘Dispatch from somewhere’ videos recorded by Alan Levine about his apparent abduction. It looks like he’s in a lot of trouble, so I quickly recorded this video in response to his urgent cry for help. Hopefully this video gets to Alan in time.
Alan, if you’re reading this, remember that we are all here to help you!
Let’s celebrate our 106ness- create a graphic, find a photo, manipulate an exiting image to somehow represent the number 106. It could be literal (like a sign that has 106 on it, example below), to say, something using CVI (roman digits), maybe something with 106 items in it….
Advertising taped to the footpath at pedestrian crossings is a common sight in areas of Busan such as Seomyeon that are frequented by youth, young people and university students. As a location for advertising it is ideal. It is one of the rare times busy pedestrians will stop, if only for a short time. That’s long enough to catch their eye with some brightly coloured paper. Placement on the footpath is also more likely to increase the potential for a pedestrian to view the advertisement as they gaze down at their smartphone. Accidental line of sight!
The outcome from this type of advertising is the large volume of waste paper. When not being replaced by a brighter more colourful campaign the advertisements quickly tear under the volume of pedestrian traffic.
Augmented advertising could reduce litter on the streets. It’s highly likely the intended audience for the advertising is using their smartphone while they’re walking. So why try to compete with their attention? Why not promote your materials within the platform? This method could reduce paper waste as well as increase opportunities for enhanced experiences such as directions to points of interest as well as sales/purchases.
My exploration of how we learn and how we design and develop stuff that helps us learn.
