Hard Place / Good Place

Hard Place/Good Place is a creative research project led by the fEEL Lab at UNSW. It focuses on lived experiences of being in a ‘hard place’ or a ‘good place’, through a collection of personal and community stories, told through Augmented Reality [AR] experiences.

Location: Yarra Ranges Regional Museum

Inspired by works such as Parragirls Past, Present the AR works each explore the lived experience of place, comprising a spoken personal ‘lived experience’ narrative (up to 15 minutes) and 3D immersive experience of moving through that place, led by the recorded voice of the story-teller. 

The project’s initial focus is on experiences in regional, rural and remote locations across Australia, including areas affected by drought, bushfire and flood. The AR works are published online and exhibited via The Big Anxiety festival / The Big Reach in various locations. 

Hard Place/Good Place: Yarra Ranges is supported by the Victorian Government.
