The Novocastrian Time Machine

The Novocastrian Time Machine by Julie Martin

The Novocastrian Time Machine is an augmented reality narrative infrastructure design concept by Julie Martin for Watt Street in Newcastle (Australia).

Julie Martin is Creative Director for Virtual Reality Entertainment Systems Pty Ltd who prepared the concept for City of Newcastle Council’s City Evolutions Project that aims to install art installations in Watt Street to brighten up the city’s landscape.

Julie visited the University of Newcastle Archives on 19th October 2012 to show us her proposal that she created using inspirations from our historical research and image collections. She spoke with University Archivist and Chair of the Coal River Working Party, Gionni Di Gravio, who recorded the presentation.
