Anywhere Somewhere Everywhere (2008)

Discover the Nottingham you didn't know on a guided tour where you are the guide. Unlock unknown spaces and overhear stories these spaces tell. Anywhere Somewhere Everywhere is an interactive conversation with new technology from fingerprint to footprint – between the visitor and the visited, past and present, private and public.

It allows participants to explore an urban area, tying together information not normally available, new points of views and interaction embedded into physical places. Guided by ‘unseen’, on-the-street performers in an ongoing conversation maintained over mobile phones, they gained access to locative media and staged performances.
