TexTales Media Lab Europe

TexTales was a public, large-scale interactive projection screen that demonstrated how public city spaces could become sites for collective expression. Each TexTales installation involved different groups of European young people taking photographs of everyday city events and controversial public issues, and then using custom software to invite general public passers-by in urban spaces to annotate the photos with SMS text messages.

I implemented some of the server-side processing for this project's user interface.
