How do you create an authentic digital space for "visitors" to interreact with industrial heritage. The objective of this poster is to explore several different paths to create this "authentic" cultural space that is entirely virtual for use in industrial heritage? The idea is not to create exact replicas of an industrial site that attempts to trick a person into thinking they are there in real life, but to find various ways to digitally interreact and explore industrial heritage. The goal is to create a unique experience that combines, education outreach, with unique opportunities so that the "visitor" not only comes out with a better understanding of the industrial site, but with a "authentic" experience that could only happen using a digital platform.
