Ghost Cities: Augmented Heritage

communication medium

Emergent Technologies: New Media and Urban Life


Based on examples of the authors' laboratory and from other researchers and artists' experiences, this chapter argues how the experience of urban cultural heritage through augmented reality transforms those models and images in digital spatialized ghosts. Within the theoretical framework of augmented space and hybrid space, the chapter focus on augmented experiences of art and culture. The authors state that the user engagement - and its relation to urban augmented heritage changes of our relationship with collective memory and the understanding of urban space itself, that is now understood as a medium.
