We propose an approach to creating shared mixed realities based on the construction of transparent boundaries between real and virtual spaces. First, we introduce a taxonomy that classifies current approaches to shared spaces according to the three dimensions of transportation, artificiality, and spatiality. Second, we discuss our experience of staging a poetry performance simultaneously within real and virtual theaters. This demonstrates the complexities involved in establishing social… Expand
4. Fragmented Boundaries: Mixing Realities by Replaying Virtual Worlds in Real Spaces
The technique of fragmented boundaries is a recent development, linking and overlaying a physical environment with its equivalent virtual world. We present the concept, and describe an earlyExpand
Mixed Reality Architecture: Concept, Construction, Use
Mixed Reality Architecture (MRA) dynamically links and overlays physical and virtual spaces. This paper investigates the topology of and the relationships between the components of MRA. As aExpand
Extending the Semiotics of Embodied Interaction to Blended Spaces
In this paper, we develop a new way of understanding interactions in blended spaces. We do this by developing ideas about embodied semiotics and then apply these ideas to the analysis of interactionExpand
drawing spaces experiments in presence and awareness of body and space in mixed realities
The interactive installation “Drawing Spaces” investigates strategies for creating a bodily sense of presence and awareness in networked space created through intersection of shared physical andExpand
Developing mixed reality boundaries
TLDR
The development of mixed reality boundaries is described, including the basic idea, the properties that can be associated with them and demonstrators, and the latest work on a particular type of boundary that establishes the illusion that virtual and physical worlds are joined together and that users can physically cross from one to the other.

A Primer on Spatial Scale and Its Application to Mixed Reality
TLDR
It is shown that spatial scale can operate effectively as a system of classification and analysis for mixed reality, and identified two concepts—scale transitions and the scale/complexity tradeoff—as critical to using this concept in future discussions of mixed reality. Expand
Exploring an Innovative Collaborative Design Space through Mixed Reality Boundaries

  • 2007
TLDR
The theory of Mixed Reality boundaries by Benford is presented, which as one of those "realities", is envisaged to construct innovative collaborative design spaces to create real-time innovative collaborativeDesign space between architects and interior designers. Expand
Designing blended spaces
We present an approach to the design of mixed reality spaces that aims to create a more harmonized and unified user experience. We refer to these as blended spaces. Blended spaces draw upon aExpand
Mixing Different Realities in a Single Shared Space: Analysis of Mixed-Platform Collaborative Shared Spaces
TLDR
This chapter aims to analyze the benefits and features of these systems, reviewing existing related works and proposing a series of features for the design of effective mixed-platform collaborative shared spaces. Expand
MIXED REALITY ARCHITECTURE : a dynamic architectural topology 106
Architecture can be shown to structure patterns of co-presence and in turn to be structured itself by the rules and norms of the society present within it. This two-way relationship exists in aExpand

Shared spaces: transportation, artificiality, and spatiality
TLDR
An example of a mixed reality called the Internet Foyer is presented, an application which provides a unified entry point into an organisation's physical and electronic environments and which supports awareness and chance encounters between the occupants of physical and synthetic space. Expand
Physical spaces, virtual places and social worlds: a study of work in the virtual
TLDR
A new interpretation of spatial metaphors for the design and construction of collaborative systems based on the notion of ‘place’ or ‘locale’, and on centres rather than boundaries are suggested. Expand
Re-place-ing space: the roles of place and space in collaborative systems
TLDR
While designers use spatial models to support interaction, it is shown how it is actually a notion of “place” which frames interactive behaviour, which leads to re-evaluate spatial systems and discuss how ‘place’, rather than “space”, can support CSCW design. Expand
Staging a Public Poetry Performance in a Collaborative Virtual Environment
TLDR
The design of a CVE poetry performance and experiences arising from staging it to two hundred members of the public are discussed, addressing issues of virtual world structure, embodiment of performers and audience, navigation interfaces, and temporal structure of the event. Expand
Supporting Cooperative Work in Virtual Environments
TLDR
A spatial model of interaction which aims to support people in using their natural social communication skills when working together is introduced, based on the notion of awareness states. Expand
The affordances of media spaces for collaboration
ABSTRACT In this paper, I discuss the affordances offered by media spaces for collaboration, contrasting their properties with those of the everyday medium and exploring the implications forExpand
Talk and embodiment in collaborative virtual environments
A B S T R A C T This paper presents some qualitative, interpretative analyses of social interaction in an internationally distributed, realtime, multi-party meeting held within a collaborativeExpand
Experiments in inhabited TV
TLDR
Inhabited TV involves the public deployment of collaborative virtual environments (CVEs) so that on-line audiences can participate in TV shows within shared virtual worlds, and builds on recent research into CVEs as social environments. Expand
Integration of interpersonal space and shared workspace: ClearBoard design and experiments
TLDR
The evolution of the novel shared drawing medium ClearBoard is described which was designed to seamlessly integrate an interpersonal space and a shared workspace and which incorporates TeamPaint, a multiuser paint editor. Expand
A space based model for user interaction in shared synthetic environments
TLDR
This work model proximity with a geometric volume of the immediate surroundings, the aura, of the participant's representation in the synthetic environment and this proximity is used to establish presence at meetings, to establish communication channels and to provide interaction. Expand
