bad weather means can’t prototype working demo so have some field recordings of pre-demo instead:
Note that the footsteps stencils were added in right before I packed up so I wasn’t able to see how effective it was.
With the sign that said “WALK ON ME,” the majority of people avoided walking on it. Some were completely oblivious to the sign. Most walked around, staring at the sign and the plywood. Some took the chance and cautiously placed a foot on the plywood, and then continue moving on after observing no difference. Some nonchalantly walked right over it, though these people seemed to consist mostly of art students.
Behavior will probably be different when I set up with the foot stencils, an accompanying slightly-descriptive sign, and actual reactions from being stepped on. This test-run was reactionless.
