This project is a new urgent exploration of the impact of cutting edge ‘augmented reality’ technologies on memory & experience. Focussing on my hometown of Hastings & St Leonards I will recreate the St Leonards Pier (destroyed in WWII) & the Albert Memorial (lost to fire in 1973) as virtual 3D models viewable in situ using smartphones.
The work will launch as a downloadable app during Coastal Currents Festival 2018 with a showcase event at Hastings Museum on 22.09.18 (who hold related objects in their collection). Presentations will take place at the Burton’s St Leonards Heritage Society, Brighton Digital Festival & the Universities of Brighton & Greenwich, accompanied by a press campaign.
The project began life being called Zoomitage, now the artworks are titled Apparitions
