Geographical study on social media is a groundbreaking research method offering great possibility to engage with forms of social behaviour and interaction on a large scale. The results of this study allow us to build a map of the affective connections people establish with the territory in which they reside. That being said, the scant use of social media by older adults means that the results of the study are largely limited to younger generations.

Omnipresent Eyes involves inhabitants of Central Asturias in a process of self-exploration of their collective identity by means of an analysis of social media and through interviews with older people. Through the gaze of local residents, the project focuses on their affective connections with their place and culture.

Thanks to a series of augmented interviews, Flow Architecture were able to gain access to participants’ emotional responses to specific local narratives, detecting spikes in interest that helped to extract a list of keywords. Together with automated searches on social media, this list gave rise to the immersive installation now being presented: a situated choral archive that maps the diversity of the region’s cultural landscape.

Omnipresent Eyes is an augmented reality experience conceived as an infoscape built from narrative layers, revealing a host of thematic connections across the whole of the metropolitan area of Asturias.
