Changing Spaces

Augmented reality filters that let you slip back in time to 19th Century India.

As a reflection of the last 70 years that the British Council (BC) has had a presence in India, BC recently launched a project called Changing Spaces, which allows moments from the past to pop up on your phone screen through filters on Facebook Stories. Through the augmented reality filters, you can see men in dhotis and turbans, fruitsellers and trams whiz past you.
