Lippman Chair, Departmental Committee on Graduate Studies Program in Media Arts and Sciences Spatial Computing Simon Greenwold Submitted to the Program in Media Arts and Sciences, School of Architecture and Planning, on May 16, 2003, in partial fulFllment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Media Arts and Sciences Abstract Spatial computing is human interaction with a machine in which the machine retains and manipulates referents to real objects and spaces. It is an essential component for making our machines fuller partners in our work and play. This thesis presents a series of experiments in the discipline and analysis of its fundamental properties.
