The Westbury Faery
The Westbury Faery is an elaborate interactive multiplatform world-building project that develops a unique mythology and community through online audience engagement and collaboration. The work spans many forms of media including live action cinematic film sequences, low-fi found footage style viral video, community building across social networks, an interactive website and an Augmented Reality app. Exploring the fine line between fiction and truth, the story combines Australian, Canadian and Irish history with folktale. It is set in two time periods, the 1840s and 2016.
