'A Tale of Two Cities’ is a simple gesture of connectivity between two places on opposite sides of England: Brighton & Hove in the southeast and Morecambe in the northwest.
Discover QR code signs along 10 selected streets in both areas during Brighton Digital Festival (13 Sept - 13 Oct) and Hack Morecambe Festival (08 Sept - 15 Sept), and imagine how other people might live through a glimpse of another place with a mobile device.
Embracing a ubiquitous yet often unpopular digital technology, this interactive public intervention attempts to connect streets that share the same name by encouraging its people to look and see from one perspective to another.
Scan these QR codes from a street near you and explore.
