Analyses of the contexts of embodiment  may benefit from a perspective sensitized to “trajectory”  to accommodate interactions between moment-to-moment experience and issues emerging longitudinally during situated interactions with places. “Trajectory” is useful for describing aspects of activity and situated dependencies that emerge as activity associated with places progresses. The concept may also contribute to understandings of relations between pre- and post- situated and situated experience and/or interactions that may be obscured by a solely task-centric frame [e.g. 3]. Here, we first rationalise applying trajectories to the multi-faceted mosaic of situated interactions with information that occur during wayfinding. Then we describe two metaphors, derived from in situ data, that encapsulate important aspects of trajectories in wayfinding by referring to linear and non-linear relationships when people acquire and use information. So, we apply the concept of trajectory to evolving action and interactions emerging from traversal through physical space. We use the metaphors to interpret a diversity of temporally evolving interactions and dependencies bearing upon embodied interaction during wayfinding. We suggest the metaphors enable the application of the trajectory perspective to the design of systems supporting this activity and, specifically, enable researchers to transparently articulate their references between activities and the situations of embodiment.
