Prototype for Static Vehicle

From Rhizome Artbase

Static vehicles propose extended definitions of architecture through electronic media. These protocols are environments or artifacts that incorporate both physical and cyberspaces. The relationship between these two types of space may be distinct, overlapping or congruent with one another, all promoting human/environment interaction, spatially coupling the operating model (simulation) with the source (building).
The following project consists of a portable plastic case containing a wireless PDA and an instruction manual. Visitors to the gallery could read the manual or take a simple card and download the Palm application from home. The application connects wirelessly to a server which captures and stores the user's message and then creates a corresponding display via DHTML. A complimentary listing of posts is displayed on the user's PDA. The application can then be beamed amongst friends extending the device as a remote distributable communication booth.
