About the Author

Stuart Reeves is a Research Fellow at Horizon Digital Economy Research, University of Nottingham. He is interested in the design of interactive technologies situated in public and semi-public settings, with particular focus on issues such as spectatorship. In his work he has been involved in developing, deploying and evaluating interaction in a variety of settings such as museums and galleries, crowded urban locations, and artistic or performance events taking place anywhere from city streets to dedicated venues.
