Dirigibles of Denali is an augmented reality app/interactive print project reimagining three domed cities that were planned, but never built in Alaska: Seward’s Success, Denali City and Arctic Town. All three domed cities will be virtually constructed on location in Alaska, using mobile augmented reality technology (overlaying virtual information on the real world), creating site-specific, digitally tangible environments using the original historic city plans. In situ, high-resolution images of these three pieces of site-specific augmented reality and a collected anthology of commissioned alternate history stories written by contemporary Alaskan authors will form the basis of the interactive book and museum show, where the works can be
activated using target-based augmented reality.
