In this Project, we illustrate an exploration of remote activities for children and their grandparents that dissolve the restricted use of space within current two-dimensional digital communication. We, therefore, experiment with ways that video chats can be integrated with physical space; we build upon findings from related work that suggest, among others, to use of full-body movements, create spatial trajectories, or facilitate open-ended play in order to establish meaning and connectedness. Here we present the design of the activities and their implementation for being experienced by children and their grandparents in a workshop format. We highlight how the participants took up the activities and discuss the “hybrid spaces” that are evolving through blending digital 2D communication with physical 3D spaces.
