PlacedHistorical Digital Platform to Collectively Archive Our History with Augmented Reality (AR)
Placed is a multi-disciplinary project between design, digital media, anthropology, sociology, and history. Placed is an interactive historical digital platform that empowers communities by giving people the tools to record and celebrate their past. Placed creates a digitally augmented layer over the physical geography of each city in which it operates and provides a timeline that allows people to view many different historical stories for any location. In essence, Placed eliminates a monopoly on history by those who have the most wealth and power in society and instead gives a voice to the marginalized and forgotten members of communities who have their own stories to tell and share.
