Description:Bohnemeyer developed the TEMPEST experiment during his PhD (2002). This experiment is based on video clips showing two events (such as eating a banana or lying down). One event happens on the left hand side of the screen and the other on the right. There are several versions of each event pairing which contrast the relative timing between the events. So in one the banana eating will finish before the other person lies down and in another the person will lie down while the other is still eating the banana. I found that the clips that Bohnemeyer used were not usable in the Avatime context. Thus Saskia and I (Rebecca) rerecorded our own version of video clips. We did not rerecord the full set but made sure that the different event types and relative orderings were all represented. You can contact me to get copies of the clips. In this task the clips were paired so that in each pair the only difference was the relative ordering of the events (so like the pair mentioned above). The consultant's task was to watch the two video clips and describe the difference between them. This was meant to focus them in on the difference in temporal ordering rather than the particulars of the events. I found that people were still quite focussed on the particulars of the events and did not abstract the temporal ordering far away from them.
