Five days a week our children make the journey from home to school. For most of us, it’s a practical, everyday routine and we don’t pay much attention to the places, spaces and details we pass along the way.
Psychogeography is the art of walking and observing, playing around with what we see in front of us, the history and myths within our urban landscapes, revealing forgotten, discarded, or marginalised parts of our city.
Working with artist Jo Coles, children from Year 6 at St Andrews Primary School have created an installation using psychogeography techniques. Students became historians, journalists, archaeologists in reverse, creative observers of everyday life. The resulting 3D map celebrates individual interpretation; a personal view of the same old, all converging at the shared community of school.
With the artwork complete, University of Brighton researchers in collaboration with Mnemoscene have developed a digital Augmented Reality (AR) experience to retell the narratives created by Year 6 for a wider audience.
Created with artist Jo Coles and researchers from the Centre for Secure, Intelligent and Usable Systems at University of Brighton, led by Dr. Karina Rodriguez.
