The guerilla campaign aimed to bring a new twist to the urban structure by incorporating interactive digital content, open for everyone to explore and engage.

THE SOLUTION

    • Tracking enhanced storytelling

AR app: AReveryware [ Google PlayApp Store ]

By activating the Image Tracking feature on their mobile devices, New Yorkers could see Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr. and Angela Davis come to life. Urban citizens were not only provided the opportunity to learn more about the outstanding civil rights activists but could also get more comfortable using AR technology in everyday life. New AR experiences gave an extra dimension to murals, boosting the audience’s interest for stories told through augmented reality.
