scARecrow Time Machine available on the App Store

Use this Augmented Reality application to find scarecrows hidden in both space and time throughout your local environment. These scarecrows are from the annual scarecrow festival held in the village of Wray in Lancashire in the UK

The emergence of the Internet and networked media has opened cracks within the chronological (Newtonian) representations of time allowing memories and stories to seep back from the past through to the present. The aim of this project was to create a mobile application for Wray which exploits this effect by allowing visitors to select past scarecrow festivals to experience and then displaying scarecrow images from that year at the relevant locations as they move through the villages, thus, allowing them to traverse both time and space. The application is now available on iTunes.
