Interactive Venice:
Using Art and Games to Bring Awareness to Venetian Social Concerns

Welcome to the 2011 Biennale project web site!

This project explores three approaches to raising awareness about the social concerns in Venice through fun and interactivity. The first approach, entitled "Interacting," consists of hardware installations designed to stimulate the senses of a user. The second approach, called "Exploring," consists of a geocaching route, an outdoor treasure hunting game. The third approach, entitled "Contributing," is a mobile application which allows users to tag and locate Venetian social concerns. These three approaches are woven together by an art exhibit that acts as a central terminal to display all of the individual elements. The exhibit uses multiple types of interaction and media in order to share knowledge of social problems in Venice, as a foundation to be featured in a major art exhibition.
