Video Traces

Always-on media spaces broadcast video to provide awareness and encourage interaction between collaborators. This video can be captured on the fly as a video trace. We created as social visualization system a variation that blends previous ideas in video editing and video art that allows people to easily and rapidly explore this video history in detail, ostensibly so they can have a better idea of the activities and availability of their collaborators. However, the system is so effective that it raises significant privacy concerns.
