Another AR project from 2013


Welcome to Walks of absent memory, a project designed for ADA Mesh Cities. This project is by Tracey Benson and explores past and present Dunedin.

The work is a literal walk around a central area of Dunedin, where participants can discover some ghostly relics of buildings. This is achieved by downloading and using an app for Internet enabled hand-held devices (smartphones and tablets) in conjunction with this blog and printed guide to the walk. The accompanying guide is designed to assist the audience (tourist) to explore the city through the eyes of an absent stranger – to recreate a fictional memory lost in time.

Print version of the guide.

You don’t have to be Dunedin to experience this work. You can also use the app with the landmark building images in this blog post and in the print version of the guide.
