Following on from Herein Berlin, this Saturday my collaborators and I are presenting an opening/performance of an “Analogue” Augmented Reality installation; this time called Herein London.
This work is a collaboration between myself, researcher Will Pearson, and writer Craig Selwyn Roper, and is an attempt to address the danger of Augmented Reality applications in homogenizing and rationalizing spaces. Story-telling is a powerfully evocative tool. By using Interactive Fiction as a medium to navigate mythic spaces and poetic encounters we attempt to reactivate the imagination as a faculty through which to experience our surrounding.
Join us 6 – 7 pm Saturday 12th March, at the south-west corner of Leicester Square, London (Facebook Event) with your imagination and phone pre-installed with a QR-code reader.
