Last Year

Liron Kroll (ISR, 2013)

In Last Year family souvenirs are used to blur our notions of the real and imaginary. Memorabilia such as personal notes, postcards or portraits are placed on a flat display which recalls a classic museum installation. By passing above with an iPad, fragments reveal small parts of the story and in viewing these fragments the user is able to imagine his or her own story. The project contradicts the idea that one real picture can generate or reflect only one augmented story; it is the user’s own imagination, at work in the augmented portion, that determines the tale.
