Columbus the Hero?
'Columbus the Hero?' is an augmented reality book/installation focused on the true story of Christopher Columbus. Powered by our Augmented Reality smartphone app, the final form of the book will be an interactive anthology of images, animations, poetry. The narrative ties Columbus' influence it to the genesis of European colonization, the genocide of 80-100 million indigenous people, the Columbian slave trade of 12.5 million people from Africa, and ties the alteration of this history to contemporary issues that black and brown people face in 2018.
