News/March 2015

We’re thrilled that a paper on our interactive work I’d Hide You has received a SIGCHI Best of CHI Honourable Mention Award. This means the paper, I’d Hide You: Performing Live Broadcasting in Public, was considered one of the top 5% of those submitted to the prestigious Computer Human Interfaces conference this year.

The paper was written by Stuart Reeves, Christian Greiffenhagen, Martin Flintham and Steve Benford of the University of Nottingham and the Blast Theory artists. It charts the significant challenges facing performers on the streets who must simultaneously engage in the game, stream compelling video footage featuring themselves, and interact with a remote online audience. By reflecting on how they achieve this, the study draws wider lessons. These are applicable to different future interfaces aimed at supporting people broadcasting video of themselves to online audiences while engaged in games, sports and other demanding real-world activities.
