Drawings of male labourers. AR Experience on Artivive App. Going Live in July 2021

In the summer of 2021, posters will be put up in and around the city of Flensburg, drawing attention to the city’s colonial past and present.

In collaboration with the Coloniality in Port Cities working group at the European University of Flensburg, I choose create interactive posters that encourage the viewer to share or contribute to a narrative.

For example, when the figure of a cotton candy seller is ‘read’ on a poster, information appears on Flensburg’s role in European sugar imports, the history of cotton candy, and a personal story from a resident of the city.

The AR posters do not communicate purely scientifically – they have a subjective, emotional element in the context of artistic research, thus attempting to bridge the gap between academic research and everyday life
