If you go away
“Multiplatform makers of rare ambition and invention” – The Guardian
If You Go Away is a GPS powered art game, an app designed to be played on the streets.
Experienced on your phone and navigated by walking in the real world at dusk the work takes you on a augmented reality journey through the streets made strange and new, haunted by the echoes of the city before, the city now and the city to come. If You Go Away asks us to play together in an augmented world, to think about what it means to be somewhere, to belong, and how the environments we live in might better reflect us.
