IMPRINTS

AR DESIGN

GIVE LIFE TO LOCATION.
COMMUNE WITH THE WORLD.
PEER THROUGH THE PAST.

Imprints allows us to experience the reaction to the world around of passerby who came before us using augmented reality . You can leave letters, using words to compose how you feel or what you thought; or leave footprints, using motion capture to show how you interacted with the world; or leave mementos, a objects the commemorate the moment or location. This shares the stories of the location, of people living in or just passing through the location; this is raw, unedited human history, and a space for listening and understanding the community around us.

Collaborated with Jessica Cheung, Maxwell Crabill, and Casey Gustafson

FUNCTIONS

Letters

LETTERS

Record with voice, display as text.
By using a word bank, we encourage you to create what you want to say within constraints, and also filters out users who want to abuse the anonymity.

Footprints

FOOTPRINTS

Record with motion capture, view in 3D space.
You record yourself in the environment interacting with the world around, and they would manifest as anonymized ghosts devoid of features.

Mementos

MEMENTOS

Collected from different time and place
stored in a treasure chest
left for the world to see.
