The Other Dawson: Historical Gossip Plaques A Permanent Augmented Reality Installation, 2016 Christopher Healey

This is a special little treat for you from artist Chris Healey.  You will find hidden gossip around town where you see historical plaques.  Follow these instructions…

To access this artwork, download and install the Aurasma app to your iOS or Android mobile device (Data must be enabled). Search for “DawsonShiver” and follow.

Now you’re ready to access Dawson City’s hidden historical plaques that share the same space with the existing physical plaques.

About the art: This work subverts the authoritative voice of the political sphere that commemorates this place as a preserved history, an event that has passed, a theme park that services guests. For those who live here it is a community that has its own history and future, a living breathing entity conflicted like any other. There are stories here that are not for the tourists.
