This week’s Public Media Scan was all about interactive projects so well-crafted that they could become the scaffolding for other ideas. Here are three interactive sites that set me dreaming:
‘A City Now Largely Lost.’ The NYPL Labs’ “Building Inspector” asks citizen cartographers to unearth old New York from their desks. Diverting, simple, useful.
Your Body Is The Turntable. A remixable walking tour of the oldest city in the Netherlands, composed with the HearUsHere audio/GPS platform. Watch; imagine the BBC Archives laid over London’s streets.
Who Survives, And How? Helios Design Labs’ “Disaster Resilience Journal” pulls in a magpie’s collection of media — quizzes, games, interviews, audio, video — to create a tightly designed interactive doc.
