B E T W E E N T H E T A G A N D T H E S C R E E NTouch publicationsThe Touch project has resulted in a number of publications in which theformat mirrors the project's focus on research and design. In addition to thetraditional publication channels like books, conferences and journals, theproject has also emphasised exhibitions, blogs and lectures. Figure 2.1 showsan exhibition that the project held at Oslo School of Architecture. Theproject's blog, found at www.nearfield.org, has also been used extensively incommunicating the projects' findings to a wider audience.The project’s first research publications involved communication associatedwith SR-RFID. This included a study of a graphic language for RFID-basedinteraction (Arnall, 2006) and a more general study of markings in publicplaces (Arnall, 2005). Figure 2.2 shows an image of various proposedgraphics for communicating SR-RFID functionality. Publications related totwo specific RFID-based designs followed. The first introduced an RFIDpoweredtoy for blind children (Johansson, 2009). Figure 2.4 offers an imageof the toy. The second described a study related to a media player forchildren using RFID-powered tangible interaction (Martinussen, Knutsen &Arnall, 2007). The input device is shown in Figure 2.3.Figure 2.2. Examples of work that aims to offer a graphic language for RFID interaction. Theicons represent various types of RFID-related interactions (Arnall, 2006).These works led to a number of more abstract explorations of RFIDtechnology. Martinussen and Arnall (2009) discussed the spatial aspects ofSR-RFID design. This author’s publications took up further aspects of SR-RFID technology in designing (Nordby, 2010, 2011; Nordby & Morrison,2010). The latter work is extensively described in this text. Finally, theproject began exploring using video to communicate SR-RFID-related14
