Echo Glass

The Urban Echoes project presents a scenario that allows city citizens to see into the intangible layers of sense of place. When wearing the Echo Glass, augmented reality eyeglasses, a person can see into the “memory fabric” of a place by reading quotes, expressions, and keywords through a digital reality that is layered onto physical real-world reality.

Urban Echoes – Echo Glass: A wearable device to discover sense of place.

The Urban Echoes project presents a scenario that allows city citizens to see into the intangible layers of sense of place. When wearing the Echo Glass, augmented reality eyeglasses, a person can see into the “memory fabric” of a place by reading quotes, expressions, and keywords through a digital reality that is layered onto physical real-world reality. In other words, when wearing Echo Glass, a person experiences sense of place more tangibly, allowing them to see “echoes” that contribute to the formation, evolution, and progression of place. In the film, an experiential view of what one would see while wearing the Echo Glass is shown through an urban nature park setting. In this case, the Echo Glass serves to heighten its wearer’s interpretation, reflection, and behaviors about nature in this place. The Urban Echoes project opens opportunity for all city citizens to make their “imprint” upon the memory fabric that contributes to sense of place within various parts of a city. A citizen’s interpretations, insights, and comments can build upon the urban memory fabric already present, and can further shape the sense of place of an environment for others to experience. In essence, the Echo Glass wearable device is an exploration of how to heighten awareness of place and open opportunities to shape place over time.
