MEMORIAL ROCAS

Interactive non-fiction storytelling

A black and white film, shot in 1971, is the only audiovisual evidence of how summers were in the cabins of Rocas de Santo Domingo, Chile. Built initially as a vacations center for poorest workers, these buildings were transformed, after the coup d’etat of Pinochet, into the first school of torture for the agents of the dictatorship. Hundreds of people opposed to the regime disappeared there. Some years ago, already in democracy, the Army destroyed these cabins, leaving only the bases of the buildings and some debris around them. Today, the place has been declared a Memorial Site and a National Monument in Chile, however, as it remains under the ownership of the Army, its protection is null, limiting the possibility of recovering its historical and patrimonial value, since this site can be walked around but not intervened.

The project “Memorial Rocas AR” aims to contribute to the rescue and reconstruction of the memory of this site. Through the use of an augmented reality app, visitors can experience different layers of the history of the site without touching it.
