Mobile HiFi Tours

Historic Filipinotown, 2008.

Mobile HiFi tours were created in collaboration with Public Matters, the Center for Embedded Networked Sensing, and the Pilipino Workers Center of Southern California. These mobile, location-based applications were created to "enable the user to travel through time, to experience the evolution of the neighborhood and the migration of Filipinos across Los Angeles through the stories of immigrants who have called it home." Guide topics included housing, employment, language, transportation, social life + recreation.
