Heartlands: heart-rate, GPS, gameplay
----------------------------------------------------------------------
What is happening to media? -- the implications of an award-winning
world-first pervasive game. A unique game/artwork that uses live heart-rate
and GPS to build each playerıs personal game experience.

Media are changing, becoming pervasive and physical instead of being
confined to conventional screens like TV, cinema and PCs. Rachel Jacobs and
her colleagues at Active Ingredient, a Nottingham based new media company,
have developed a world-first pervasive game which recently won the first
Nokia Ubimedia international award in conjunction with the Mixed Reality Lab
at Nottingham University. The work originated in a Wellcome Trust-funded
project while Rachel was a postgraduate in the Lansdown Centre and has
received world-wide attention. The Centre welcomes her back to Middlesex to
reflect on the project and draw out issues for the future.
