1999 is an augmented reality trail exploring one past life (amongst others) of the area now known as the Cultural Quarter. Long-closed underground clubs are remembered through 3D layouts and architectural floor plans, drawn from a deep dive into hazy, bassy memories of the late ’90s and early ’00s.
Created by artist Khush Khali, this augmented reality trail can be experienced via your smartphone or tablet – using the device’s camera to overlay a ‘digital layer’ on real world locations.
The trail is still in development but you can preview several of the locations now.

This will ask you for permission to use your camera. Allow this to view the AR trail. There are currently AR drawings to find on Rutland St. and Midland St.
