Our experience-design philosophy:
SATSYMPH do not simply transfer ‘traditional tour guide formats’ to this new media form. We do not create ‘now you are here, listen to this‘, ‘now you are there, listen to that‘ scenarios. Why bother? Use mp3, or, better still, a real live tour-guide! Rather, we create authentically-based re-imagined dramatised interpretations which use pervasive media for what it was born for: to bring personalised virtual worlds to life; to open windows into what was, what could have been, what might have been, what will be. A SATSYMPH scape transports participants into compelling parallel Universes.
Current SATSYMPH interpretive projects:
- South Dorset Ridgeway Landscape Partnership
For this 5-year Heritage Lottery-funded project SATSYMPH are doing a mixture of facilitating community interest-group participation (GPS-placing field recordingsdelivered by DIVAcontemporary/Bridport working with interested community groups), working with local and regional education establishments (such as with the Sir John Colfox School in Bridport), and working with artist groups and individual artists interested in developing a new aspect to their work.
