Mariah is an augmented reality app that narrates stories of historical injustice. A special version created for Letterform Archive's "Strikethrough: Typographic Messages of Protest" exhibition prompts visitors to San Francisco area sites of protest to learn about objects in the gallery and the history of other local movements. Viewers can download the iPhone app, then pick up a paper map at Letterform Archive or use the digital map.
This project is named for Mariah Lotti. She died of an overdose on July 11, 2011. Mariah was nineteen years old. Thank you to Rhonda Lotti for your on-going support of this work.
