Zelige Door on Golborne Road

Zelige Door on Golborne Road

Multisensory immersive installation by Alda Terracciano including 2D and 3D prints, photographs, objects, smells, tastes, sounds, augmented reality software, and video recordings of Moroccan people’s memories. 2017.

Between May and December 2016, Alda Terracciano engaged 44 members of the Moroccan community in West London in a series of Memory Sessions to explore their living heritage and everyday life. The process led to the creation of Zelige Door on Golborne Road, an interactive installation including a map populated by physical objects related to various aspects of Moroccan culture, each requiring a different sense to be experienced. Augmented Reality (AR) technology is used to superimpose onto the objects pre-recorded video narratives of community participants living, working or visiting Golborne Road and olfactory displays to reproduce familiar smells, offering a unique experience of the road represented as a living archive of cultural memories of the place.

Produced by Aldaterra Projects as part of Mapping Memory Routes of Moroccan Communities project. See a selection of memories here.
