English abstract
Our project is an early exploration of a less-used path toward social justice. Working at home in Namibia, we inquire about the roles we and those similar to us, the local middle classes and elites, might imagine taking for a more just society. For this, we use an augmented reality (AR) application that allows for easy adding to a collective content by users. The application will be coupled with a thought-provoking installation to kindle processes of self-reflection, listening across difference, and thinking of what a healthy conflict could mean in the Namibian context of social justice.
