During World War II, more than 10,000 Japanese Americans were unjustly incarcerated at Manzanar. This audio AR project geolocates recordings from Manzanar’s past and present around the former concentration camp, now a national historic site. Using a mobile app, visitors walking around the site can explore its rich oral history, and record their own reflections to add to the project. This participatory approach invites visitors to engage with both the physical site and its historical archive in new ways, and creates a living document of resistance, resilience, and community across generations.
