About The Platypus Project. People, folklore, tradition, eccentricites and diversity.
The Platypus Project is an ongoing anthropological project documenting and studying the folk of Britain.
This is carried out by looking at the folklores and traditions inherent within local communities and British society. It seeks to reveal a rich diversity and sense of belonging or division without judgement, political or religious bias.
Within each mapazine you will read about a small group of people, linked through a common bond. It's an opportunity to understand the world as seen through another's life experience. It explores local dialect, poetry, shanty and music as well as a running documentary narrative through words and pictures.
From stunning visuals in print, to immersive 360 videos, audio and images to explore via a smart device and google cardboard viewer.
If you see the logos for Blippar or Google cardboard then point your smart phone or device at the image and follow the journey digitally. Have a look at the video below for how the augmented reality works.
