'Lament' Augmented Reality

'Lament' is an ambitious new moving image project by Sean Vicary, interweaving site specific found objects, animation, poetry and music to explore a personal narrative of loss, longing and belonging in the Welsh borderlands. To complement the moving image work we have installed a series of animated site specific virtual objects that can be viewed on a smart phone by using the Layar augmented reality (AR) app.

These are located along the Stiperstones ridge, on the Shropshire / Powys border and can be found by taking the main path up the hill from the top car park, as shown on the map at the bottom of the page.
