About

Travel back in time to Washington Square Park of  1968 through augmented reality, and join Wallace and June – two young activists on a hot spring day, in a cinematic experience.

My role

Augmented reality is tailor-made for historical fiction. 1968 WSQP App tells the story of 1968 and provides the necessary historical context to the same challenges we face as a society today. Through the story of Wallace and June, we introduce our audience to same-aged social activists which once stood and waved protest signs at the same place, and often — on behalf of the same values.

My role included leading a team of scriptwriters, musicians, and content creators while overseeing historical research. As the project evolved, I was dived into delightful research about AR UX & UI best practices.

Sound and design

How can we use a 2D interface to provide guidance for a 3D experience? Thanks to playwright Joanna Evans who wrote the spoken text, drummer Roy Ben-Yosef, and guitar player Roberto Trzini, who wrote an original soundtrack we utilized all senses to provide a content-reach AR experience.
