Effectively guiding people in complex and highly dynamic work environment requires advances in high-level declarative activity models that can describe the flow of human work activities and their intended outcomes, as well as novel user interface models for distributing guidance information across time and space. This paper describes a new line of research aimed at developing a new programming and human interface approach for pervasive systems based on high-level models of human activities, so-called situated flows, and mobile projector interfaces for uncovering task information embedded in physical environments.
