The Brief• To Plan for the process of taking down the wall.• “We will focus on the idea of a site as a transition zone…”
The Brief• “This Wall is both a barrier and creates a sense of identity.”• “This community is fractured and complex, but there was a strong sense of identity.”
What’s on the other side?
Graffiti By Numbers
CONCEPT • Divide the Existing Wall into a grid • Using a smart phone embed either a Photo or Graffitied section • This will eventually produce a Virtual wall• With Individual input from Devonport Residents
Technology Task• Using open source technologies in the field of Augmented Reality and Internet of Things• Identify an object in a unique way and link any sort of multimedia digital information to it.• Place spatially embedded information also using overlaid augmented Reality
Our Plan • To use Augmented reality with geolocation • Image of a grid would be taken • Geolocation of the grid would be used • Image or Graffiti Data of the grid would then be loaded to a MySQL database• The Layar application reads the data allowing a user via a smart phone to view the image in-situ
AR (Augmented Reality) Augmented reality (AR) layers digital information onto aphysical environment viewed through a device such as a smart phone.
OUTCOME 1)A brick or section would be identified picture of person taken uploaded to database2)The brick or section removed 3)Then by using a smart phone you can return to that area and view your image as part of the wall
