On 25 July 2014, Dakota Crescent, a predominantly rental flat estate with lower income residents, would be slated for redevelopment. By December 2016, most of the residents had moved out of this place they used to call ‘home’.
As the relocation began, the Between Two Homes team came together to document the relocation through a multimedia website. We sought to use Dakota Crescent as a case study on how the community could come together to preserve memories of a place and render assistance to those affected by relocation.
This project’s centrepiece is a unique interactive website comprising text, photography, and videography, woven in the form of a compelling narrative. To allow users to truly empathise with the residents’ stories and see life from the residents’ perspectives, we tapped into newer forms of media such as 360 photos and videos.
