Lydia’s Magic Garden AR project tells the story of a beloved community garden that was started in El Barrio by resident Lydia Roman. When viewers activate this augment in their devices they will learn the history about the garden through photographs that depict the early years of the garden (early 1990s), and throughout its growing seasons up until 2008 when it was taken over by developers and downsized. The photos included in this project have been taken by Lydia Roman and by the artist.
