Multispecies and Urban Spaces: AR and Place-based Learning






  • Multispecies and Urban Spaces is a series of interactive walking tours made possible by an augmented reality (AR) browser for iPhone/iPad developed by Phoenix Toews. The works (in progress) make visible social, political and ecological histories of multispecies relations in urban spaces. Presenters will explain the tours, and then discuss researching local spaces and hidden histories, and developing technical, aesthetic and conceptual possibilities for an AR, GPS enabled platform, including ways of structuring an active, meaningful experience for the user. In groups, participants will storyboard/design one section of an AR tour regarding human/animal entanglements around Albuquerque.
