Ambiguous Devices

This project explores ideas of distributed collaboration and remote presence through mediated interaction with ambiguous devices. These devices are distributed between two remote but networked spaces. Activity in your space is represented in a non-literal way on the instrument in the other space. In this way your presence is conveyed by the instrument into the other space. Designed as a meta-instrument spanning both spaces the instrument is used to examine the formation of collaborative practice at a distance through limiting the amount of information available to any one participant.
