Abstract:In this paper we reflect on our experiences in developing
PANORAMA, a playful application meant to promote
and support social awareness in a work environment,
through art-inspired visualisations of social processes
and personal contributions. With respect to the design
of PANORAMA, we found common notions of visual
semiotics helpful in determining the overall composition
of the screen layout. More in general, however, the
development of PANORAMA proved to be an exercise
in interaction aesthetics, which as we will argue in
this paper may greatly benefit from common notions in
interactive video game play. In this paper we will only
briefly discuss technical and deployment issues, since
our main contribution here is to establish the relation
between the aesthetics of interaction and game play.
