About Us

PALIMPSEST will introduce a new type of museum experience. When the project is fully developed, you will be able to witness urban legends and forgotten stories come to life in a mixed reality setting.

PALIMPSEST PROJECT PHASES

PALIMPSEST aims to create an interactive archive of urban legends and stories and will take place in the regions of Epirus (GR) and Puglia (IT). The first phase of the project will involve collecting these stories. During this phase, primary school students will be asked to get in contact with elderly family members in order to gather information about urban legends. The second phase will involve creating a mobile app with a map that pinpoints the exact locations in which the collected stories took place. During the third phase of the project, artists will be invited to create interactive art installations inspired by the collected stories. The artworks will be installed in the locations pinpointed in the map and visitors will be able to activate them on-site. Finally, the stories, the mobile app and the art installations will be interconnected in order to transform the in-situ archive of urban legends into an integrated museum experience.
