Along the Tracks | Saint-Henri (le Sud-Ouest), Montreal | 2013 | John Naccarato

The proposed virtual (AR) intervention will consist of four channels. Each channel compliments each other to explore the complexity and importance of the space/s we occupy and move through – in this case Saint-Henri and the adjoining neighborhoods of Little Burgundy, Pointe-Saint-Charles, Saint-Paul-Émard and Griffintown. These neighborhoods each share a rich history and have had a important and profound effect not only on Montreal and Quebec but the rest of Canada. However their very existence – their past, present and future identity –  is now threatened by the onslaught of mass gentrification.
