Thanks to The Arts Council of England funding we are launching a new free app for iOS (Apple & iPad) devices as well as for most Android smartphones in May 2022. If you would like to be notified when this is available drop me a line.

If you enjoy Apparitions, do try the new addition of ‘Pioneer’ which you can read more about here. The difference with this new version is that it is also triggered by you actually being where it once stood. This could be anywhere along Kemptown seafront to Rottingdean, using geo-tagging.

You can also print them out from here.

If you would like either app as soon as it available  please complete this form and we will send you a link as soon as its available

* iOS device needs to be upto date – running system 10 or above for any ‘AR’ to work, some older iPads may not be updatable.

IMG_3254Each experience requires headphones to access the soundscape attached to it, time travelling from the launch of the bygone site to its demise.  Augmented Reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are “augmented” by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data and displayed whilst looking at the screen via the camera in most smart phones – android and iPhone.
