Riot 1831 @ Nottingham Castle is an augmented reality exhibition presenting accounts of real people who witnessed or were involved in the attack on Nottingham Castle during 1831 opened in July 2015. I was one of the lead artists and researchers that developed Riot1831, Nottingham Castle Augmented Reality (AR) experience (Digital R&D grant). The project made a case for storytelling as a vital ingredient for sustained museum visitor engagement in AR experiences.
