The I Was here AR application uses Augmented reality to highlight the untold stories of enslaved Africans in Inwood, who later forged an African American identity and shaped American history.

I Was Here is a blend of technology and the arts that explores the history of America through the lens of the African diaspora, from enslavement to the forging of an African American identity. In collaboration with the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum, this app allows the user to visit significant historical site in Inwood, and learn about the history of enslavement in Upper Manhattan.

The project exposes the significance of memory, history, and ancestry through public art and public history installations that serve as a mindful, reverent, and powerful acknowledgment of American history.

Download the application for iphone or android.
