We launched the app at the Republic Square on 21 February, and you can visit it by downloading the McKledin Fountain app. In this augmented reality app, viewers hold up a tablet or smart-phone like a protest sign and reveal a full-scale, 3D architecturally correct simulation of the original fountain. When viewers tap on a protest sign they may wander architect Thomas Todd’s stunning 18 animated waterfalls, including the infamous double waterfall. Sprinkled throughout are ‘memory artifacts’, such as koi, skates and pennies that trigger the Baltimore heroes who reminisce on protests; ladies trans picnics; anime costume events; being arrested; kids swimming; a marriage proposal, all told by rappers, activists, a former mayor, teachers, a hula hooper, architect and lawyer, who are among the featured heroes who remember McKeldin Fountain.
The Nonument01: McKeldin Fountain exhibition at the City Museum is open until Wednesday, 28 February,
but you can still visit the memorial at the Republic Square.
