Boston Logan Discovery considers the experience in Places vs Non-Places in a traveling context. Places, like travel destinations, deliver on creating moments of leisure and discovery. But getting to travel destinations requires going through non-places, spaces that are bridges between destinations. Non-places are therefore associated with negative feelings or experiences. This project creates interventions that use interaction to create moments of memory. It addresses key pain points in airport experience centered around waiting - the security line, the gate, and the baggage claim. By simply putting a VR viewing scope optimized for high-traffic areas, the user is able to superimpose images on the existing architecture. These images are meant to blending seamlessly with the context to create a feeling of telepresence.
