Watch What You Do

Is there a lot of hustle and bustle in your office or are people stationary? These questions sparked an interesting experiment at the Copehagen Institute of Interaction Design. Sidetrack is a table that draws patterns to reflect movement within an environment, specifically targeting certain areas or people. The mechanics consist of an old printer and B&O turntable. The more erratic patterns reflect a highly interactive space. A minimal one denotes a room full of people sitting quietly with their headphones on, barely moving. Which one are you?
