Bringing the past to life through AR-enabled affective storytelling


Despite the long history of use of technologies such as mobile AR in heritage, it is only in the latest years that AR design started considering the richness of stories connected to the heritage places and make them the focus of the design process. Within this field, Mariza Dima will talk about creating an affective journey of a heritage site drawing on dramaturgy and using smart glass AR to tap into the site's dramatic potential. She will present her recent project, Sutton House Stories, discuss challenges and opportunities of the design process and introduce a draft framework for creating smart glass AR heritage journeys that are meaningful, educational, and fun.

Host: Josep Blat
