Multi-monitor setups are common in various domains such as stock exchange, ship bridges, and emergency control centers. We developed a light display for such a multi-monitor setup, that is controlled by eye-tracker input to guide the attention of a user from the currently focused display to another display, that is in demand of attention. Together with HCI experts for light displays we designed, implemented, and evaluated three different strategies for attention guidance with our light display in a user study. We found that ambient guidance cues that begin at the current focus of the user are faster in guiding the user to a target in the periphery than ambient guidance cues in the peripheral vision of the user.
