Walk With Me

  • Filipe Gomes

Walk With Me uses the act of listening, walking and exploration to highlight what locality means to the individuals within it… …the work is an interactive archive of Geocached Oral History Excursions, which, have been ‘virtually’ placed within the physical world. Listeners must seek and find these excursions and embark on an array of personal journeys. On the Walk With Me phone app, a map with numerous pins indicates the start point of an excursion. The listener must navigate to one of these pins. At the pin location they’ll scan the area by looking through the camera on their phone. Whilst doing this the app will highlight a location by presenting an augmented reality event on a particular area. Once this is found, the listener will be prompted to start the audio excursion.
