Onion Routing AR Walking TOR is a participatory interpretation of the inner workings of onion routing and the TOR browser using augmented reality and location-based virtual markers. Each participant will visit a group of geolocated 3D models as waypoints around the Radical Networks venue forming a simulation of onion routing where the user represents a programmatically routed data packet. Each route is randomly generated with each stop slowly decrypting a hidden message.
This is part of a larger project, Ubiquitous City, a multi-layered Internet based experience about global supply chain infrastructure told through a series of interactive scenes and puzzles, guiding participants through the tentacular networks of the global marketplace and the world wide web.
