Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Information, communication and wayfinding: Technology shows us the world
by Liang, Mai, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 11; 1521875
Abstract (Summary)

With emerging technology, the relationship between individuals and the environment has changed dramatically. We live in a world awash in an ocean of information and electronic devices like smart phones have become intermediaries that help us to understand our surroundings in new ways.

This is the subject of my thesis exploration. I examined this subject using smart phone technology and also emerging technologies such as electronic paper. I explored the use of these technologies in a number of settings, city streets, a hospital, museums and on trains. My projects include an interactive installation, an iPhone application, an e-paper patient card, an interactive museum guidebook and a window display for trains.

I will keep exploring the applications of new technologies and constructing more bridges between the real and the virtual world.
