Abstract

This research presents initial work that brings together artists, designers, technologists and the community of content creators to describe the events of World War I through the voices of families and soldiers. These stories, that would have been otherwise lost, are restored and narrated in modern day, and finally distributed through new locative audio experiences. Homing is a locative-based audio navigation experience designed to encourage visitors to explore these stories by visiting the Harris Museum Roll of Honour and War Memorial. The project brings to life the museum and the Cenotaph to unite and bridge the physical gap between two artefacts to tell and disrupt a broader story.
