Historiscope

A collaboration with Alex Samuel and Apon Palanuwech

Historiscope is an urban intervention/installation that let people take a moment to reflect on the history of culturally-rich neighborhoods and encourage busy people to pause to appreciate public art. We explore the overlapping layer of the old image, using a simple transparent sheet, to the real space, trying to precisely map them into a single layered picture. So far we’ve been installed and user-tested in Chinatown/Little Italy and Williamsburg, Brooklyn area.
