We present +flow paper+, an ambient visual interpretation of natural activities that occur in public spaces such as a cafés. +flow paper+ is an interactive visual extension of physical actions and activities: an interactive wallpaper that responds to the users’ movements in the café. It investigates the possibility of designing installations that promote personalisation and customisation of public environments. +flow paper+ is informed by an approach to design that emphasises engagement, by providing open-ended situations that engage the user in reflection on the use and acceptance of technology.
