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 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.
