Abstract

The Eastern edge of Nottingham (UK) city centre is undergoing substantial restructuring, which will have a major impact on the people living in the area. Future Garden is an interactive story, delivered on a handheld PDA device, which explores the past, present and possible futures of Sneinton Market, one part of the area to be re-developed. This paper introduces Future Garden including its novel navigation interface based on video and self-reporting and some early results of the still ongoing evaluation.
