Citizen Rotation Office

This project is a 24 hour immersive experience, that places participants within a fictional world. Encouraging them to become more aware of the everyday and alternative experiences of the future.

The scenario is experienced in-context, through the careful design of a fictional government service experience, combining mobile technology, audio guides, digital props, improvisation actors, rented accommodation, food and delivery services.
