“Very important human rights memorial sites are being destroyed over time, and my vision is to rebuild them using AR along with witness and victim testimonies in order to be able to visit the past, because keeping our country’s memory alive is the only way to make a better future.”

Pepe Rovano, Creator, to Docubase

 

Memorial Rocas AR is an interactive Chilean documentary that employs augmented reality technology to recreate Rocas de Santo Domingo, a holiday vacation site turned into a center of torture by Pinochet’s dictatorship, and later destroyed by the Chilean military. The purpose of the project is to maintain the memory of this site so the acts that took place here are not erased from history.

The project takes the form of a virtual tour that takes the viewer through the different places that were part of these facilities. Through the tour the virtual visitor encounters, videos of the current state of the site, 3D models of the demolished installations, and audio testimonies of different actors, such as vacation visitors, former members of the military, and survivors.

Preservation Wishes
