Using augmented reality (AR) applications, the 2017-2018 UVA Praxis Team created the project titled UVA Reveal: Augmenting the University to augment spaces and locations on the University of Virginia (UVA) campus. UVA is a southern historic campus with an enrollment of 22,000 students; given its history and recent spotlight in the news, UVA’s campus is ripe for the historical inquiry and narrative intervention that our project proposes. In augmenting UVA’s campus, we hope to expose the historical, cultural, (inter)national, (trans)sexual, and (dis)ability-related “archeology” of objects, places, and events. (Peer Reviewed)
