For this project, we chose to focus on the absence of Eleanor Roosevelt (ER) at Four Freedoms Park (FFP) in New York City, despite her active political participation during Franklin D. Roosevelt’s presidency. Our goal was to communicate this participation using Augmented Reality (AR) and the power of dance. We conducted various forms of research in order to determine the best way to approach this and found that an interactive mobile AR app was the best way to do this so that each user was able to have their own experience. Our experimentation with AR also helped assess the limitations of what can be implemented within this time frame.
