With Mobile technologies, Augmented Reality (AR) entered a whole new phase. Mobile AR promises to enable in-situ activities and kinds of communications that allow people to solicit memories of places. Nevertheless, a series of mobile apps that simply overlay bubble icons on the camera viewfinder rather limit our imagination for what we could do with this (possibly) innovative, necessary, and if not useful channel of communication.
The workshop starts by recalling places of importance to participants who will then brainstorm about the memory of that place, when it is reenacted, how can it be (re)invented, mixed, and shared. As an outcome of the discussions, participants will organize the content of the Memory Feed. Finally they will develop scenarios of mobile AR applications for reclaiming a sense of place.
Please bring your laptop, mobile device, or camera...!
