Exploring Space with FieldVenturer
FieldVenturer is a project experimenting with a long-range remote-controlled and collaboratively-piloted vehicle. It centres on the design, development and public deployment of a Rover: a small tracked vehicle equipped with sensors and a camera and an elaborate ‘Command Centre’ through which it can be controlled by members of the public. Through a series of FieldVenturer events, we are beginning to explore how experiencing spaces through a ‘drone’s eye view’ can play a part in promoting discussion around the reconfiguration and re-articulation of public spaces. Through an interface that involves different temporal approaches to control and feedback we are also beginning to explore how varying the pace of interaction along multiple timescales can affect how spaces are experienced.
