Abstract

This paper explores potentials of interactive media technology, public spaces and interaction media art and design as potential drivers for behavior changes and social innovations within future Smart City ecosystems. Design for Behavior Change as an approach is already accepted in several key areas such as ecology, safety, health and well-being as well as widely adopted in social design. In the paper are presented two interactive projects InnerBody and Before & Beyond we used to explore possibilities of Interactive Media Art & Design in the conceptualization of public spaces, and the way it can affect and provoke user behavioral changes in a sense of increasing user’s consciousness related to certain parts of sustainable community development.
