> Hi everyone,
> It has been some time since the NSW members of CHISIG got together outside OZCHI, but this is all about to change!
> From the 7th of June, there will be a talk, demonstration, dinner or gathering on the 1st Tuesday evening of every month > -> so mark this down in your diaries now! These events are a great opportunity to get to know and connect with other members in the HCI community, introduce non-members to CHISIG, and to be able to discover, discuss and share some of the exciting things we are working on.
> To begin the series of events Ross Gibson and Toni Robertson from UTS will be giving us a talk on:
> 'Finding Information, Emotion and Imagination in Pictorial Archives'
> 'The Bystander Field' is a 360 degree interactive audio-visual environment in which 'visitors' or 'investigators' or 'curators' stand and walk to contemplate prescribed meanings as well as possible meanings and emotions pertaining to large picture archives. Part evolving movie, part haunted room and part narrative engine, the environment is designed to draw a kind of 'power' from images in ways that most conventional search&display databases do not consider. The picture archive that we are working with in this iteration of the project is an extraordinary collection of crime scene photographs licensed from the NSW Police Service.
> 'Bystander' is being developed by a team whose individual members come from several different disciplines. New members with backgrounds in user-centred design approaches and methods joined an established collaboration of artists in the project team. The motivation was to investigate how the methods, tools and techniques developed to support user-centred technology design methods might be made useful in designing the potential interaction and experiential opportunities within a multi-user, immersive, interactive environment. The presenters will talk about the objectives and surprises of the practice-based and art-related research and design methods that we've used throughout. There will also be lots of pictures and movies.
