Description (in English): 

Sherwood Rise was an experimental arts project that investigated possible futuristic forms of the book. The challenge was how to expand a traditional paper book (codex) using new media technologies. Sherwood Rise uses AR in an experimental artistic way, and tells a participatory and interactive story through printed newspapers, mobile phones, and email. AR is used to enable multiples voices in the story, where each voice tells the story from different and opposing perspectives. The AR also acts as the interface to the story, and enables the reader to change and control the story and eventual outcomes.
