Full Project Description:
The Future Cemetery Project is an immersive experience that engages cemetery visitors with the UK’s postmortem past. The project uses Arnos Vale Cemetery in Bristol as a platform for a collaboration between the University of Bath’s Centre for Death and Society and media company Calling the Shots.
In 170 years of operation, Arnos Vale Cemetery Trust has handled 320,000 dead bodies, equivalent to ¾ of the living population of Bristol. This entire project utilises mobile, projection and AR technologies to build a future cemetery model, where Victorian past and digital present are woven together.
