Viewfinders is a research-creation project that looks at the impact of mobile media on travel experiences. It explores the ways in which mobile images can contribute to a new geographical awareness and offer an alternative to hegemonic forms in documentary. The project combines linear video with an interactive website and an AR app. This project is in collaboration with Max Schleser (Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia).
