Abstract: Contemporary distributed enterprises present challenges in terms of demonstrating community activity awareness and coherence across individuals and teams in collaborating networks. Building with a Memory is an experiential media system that captures and represents human activity in a distributed workplace over time. The system senses and analyzes movement in two workspaces in a mixed-use building with the results rendered in an informative ambient display in the building entryway. We describe the design and development of the system, together with insights from two studies of the installation and promising future directions.
