The Tidal Dispatch

A strange bottle has been found in the Southbank on the shores of the river Thames. When inspected through a screen, the artifact triggers an ambiguous help message from the future. There are six more bottles waiting to be found.

Can you find them?

What might their messengers be trying to tell us?

The Tidal Dispatch invites us to engage in a physical and augmented reality adventure to piece together fragmented messages from a distant future, creating a cultural archive to be preserved.

10-15th of July // Thames River (Southbank Area) // Don’t forget to check the low tide schedules!

Through the project we aim to explore relationships between culture and identity, and to ask how processes of acculturation can be challenged within post-colonial contexts.
