Memory Train

Eliseu, Sérgio; Bastos, Paulo Bernardino;


This project explores the potential of Augmented Reality technology when applied to the artistic production, mainly in its Urban Guerrilla Art aspect. “Memory Train”, a mobile Augmented Reality artwork, is provided as a case study. Built on the Layar platform, this project was developed as a protest against the shutdown and destruction of a centenary portuguese railway line, involving an unauthorized (but legal) invasion of the former train route with pictures, sounds and messages captured and recorded by many users in several locations. Besides exploring the concept of space beyond the physical location and relative artistic issues about place-memory, this work also intends to include other related data to each setting, providing it with a new socio- political narrative.
