This project explores how augmented reality (AR) can be used to change space into place (where space refers to geographic location and place refers to culturally enriched geographical space). This project incorporated a participatory design approach to bring Limerick people’s autobiographic memories to life through the use of AR. The resulting prototype was an immersive art experience which allows viewers to experience the flora and fauna of the River Shannon which flows through Limerick’s city centre.
