Aaron A. Reed: what if im the bad guy? and other stories

Explore the true story of an accused Marine through both an augmented reality excursion where different perspectives on the truth collide in real-world spaces.

what if im the bad guy? and other stories presents four experimental narratives exploring ways that stories can become tactile, sculptural, and participatory. The title work invites participants to explore the true story of an accused Marine through both an augmented reality excursion where different perspectives on the truth collide in real-world spaces, and an interactive fiction replaying a frozen battlefield moment through the words of six different narrators with violently conflicting goals and ideologies. All four pieces explore how narratives can be atomized and reconstituted to create meaningful and moving collaboration between authors and participants.
