Our built environment is becoming increasingly equipped with public displays, many of which are networked and share the same physical location. In spite of their ubiquitous presence and inherent dynamic functionalities, the presence of multiple public displays is often not exploited, such as to solve dynamic wayfinding challenges in crowded or complex spaces. Hence, we have studied how signage can be animated onto multiple consecutively located public displays in combination with other content. This paper reports on an in-the-wild evaluation study in a real-world, metropolitan train station in order to identify the most promising design strategies to: 1) provide the notion of spatial directi..
