This project explores the urban landscape through algorithmic walking and photography. Each participant (over thirty people) was asked to walk the following directions from any starting point in their city: 1) walk west 2) take your first right 3) take your first left 4) take your first right 5) stop. These were the only restrictions. A participant was then encouraged to take photographs at any point along their walk. Some of the cities covered were: Boston, Paris, Auckland, Santiago de Chile, and Tokyo.  read more »

Chinatown

Chinatown is a site-specific interactive narrative in Chinatown, Boston. The project uses QR codes to 'tag' stories told through videos that a participant can access using a camera on their phone to scan the individual codes. After a participant watches the video, they are prompted to record a video, sound or take photographs and create their own QR codes to leave in Chinatown for others to experience. The hope for this project was to create an ongoing interactive story of the people, places and food in Chinatown.  read more »
