SaltSpace are delighted to introduce our new 'What If' resident, Sharon Ferris. Sharon is a visual designer for emerging technologies who creates digital, interactive and immersive virtual experiences in her work. Over the coming weeks Sharon will share insights with us into her research area during the 'What If' residency. Sharon intends to use augmented reality to interrogate the site of one of Glasgow's lost buildings, The Old Basin House Tavern at Bairds Brae, and revisit some of the contextual principles behind public and open space, humans and community building. We're excited to see how Sharon's research develops over her weekly updates!
