Embark to Pera pARkours - Tour/Intervention

Pera pARkours is a work-in-progress that uses Augmented Reality (Layar) to re/dis/locate fragments from the archive of our interactive cross-media project Coffee Deposits::: Topologies of Chance into public space. These locative "post-scripts" explore a small radius in the Pera/Galata vicinity to uncover disparate narratives weaving both fictive and documentary elements that include past Armenian presences, the détournement of cup reading to neo/geo-caching for prophetic visions.

*Pera (also known as Galata) was a district in Constantinople
(established circa 13th century as a Genoese trading colony) north of
the Golden Horn, which now encompasses parts of Beyoğlu, Karaköy,
Tophane, Tarlabaşı, Cihangir etc. Pera originates from Greek, meaning
"beyond or across" and the district was particularly known for its
presence of Greek, Armenian, Italian, and Jewish residents and
businesses. See more documentation:
