This paper focuses upon the reframing of cultural heritage as bodily experience articulated through narrative based media. The concept of mediation is introduced and explored, as a knowledge intensive process that integrates the production and construction of information interfaces. Such interfaces are negotiated through, and translated by, bodily interaction and bodily reasoning. As such, the mediation process is shaped through the reformulation of kineasthetic, somatic and embodied experiences, that both, customize the interaction process, and shape the resultant outputs that effect construction of knowledge. For enhancement of the mediation process, guidelines for maintaining the integrity of the mediation are discussed. The approach is demonstrated over several projects that explore these concerns through low fidelity prototypes executed in an experimental manner. © 2011 IEEE.
