Tejp was a project consisting of a series of low-tech experiments that explored various means of overlaying personal traces and information on public spaces. Aiming towards context-specific and personal expression and towards more embodied interaction with locative media, the use of PDAs was voluntarily avoided. Instead, the physical urban space mediated the interaction between users and information layers. For examples, audio tags fixed on walls whispered audio messages to by-passers leaning towards it. Tejp is Swedish for "tape" and is pronounced the same way.


Tejp was a collaboration between the Interactive Institute (Margot Jacobs and Ramia Mazé) and Viktoria Institute (Lalya Gaye) between 2003 and 2005. Tejp was funded through the Mobile Life SSF project and the Public Play Spaces research platform.
