ElicitTABLE

ElicitTABLE

The first ElicitTABLE combined information touch screens with information postcards. The idea was to enhance the way we access information in public spaces.

The result was an information screen projected onto a large white table. Placing different postcards on the table activated different topics; you could then keep relevant cards to remember key information for the topics and events you liked. The second production of ElicitTABLE appears in the Hero’s and Villains Exhibit on comic books published in Australia at the State Library of Victoria. I was approached to create an interactive work for the exhibition. Comic book covers are projected onto tables. As the user brushes their hand over covers they reveal hidden speach bubbles and action graphics about the characters and authors. The idea was recreate the immersive nature of comics and comic art.
