AutoLounge, 2007
Julie Andreyev and Simon Overstall

AutoLounge, is an interactive social space used for relaxation and discussion, joining the visiting community with the local community. Visitors’ physical presence is tracked by cameras, microphones and software to produce an audio-visual panoramic environment. As visitors travel through¬†AutoLounge, their movements trigger the display of “avatars” – videos of individuals in the community – mapped onto projected videos of the surrounding urban landscape. An ambient soundscape is generated automatically by pre-determined combinations of sounds of the space.
