The main reason for creating this application was to examine the behaviour of a user in digital world and to bring forward a new technology such as Augmented Reality to be used in mobile application.
My customer need an application to get an advantage over competitors; he was willing to take a risk and tryout AR function in his application, as Ive assured him that it will open a vast amount of additional services that can potentially be implemented by the company to provide better service.
After 9 months of inspiring and intensive work I have created not only an application but a separate brand and a new department that is now became a part of Real Estate Agency “Becar”: a new brand name with logo, redesigned the web-site design and its structure in order to achieve a coherence between the application and a desktop version and I have build an IOS application for IPad and Iphone devices.

Upon returning to the Democratic Republic of Congo after spending more than a decade in the United Kingdom where my family and me had emigrated when I was a child, I found myself falling in love with my country and Africa all over again. Although trapped in a system of recklessness and political unrest as constantly portrayed by the media it was wonderful to see that these negative stereotypes that were being put out by the media were only showing one side of a country that was once a shining symbol of Africa’s modernity, growth and prosperity. This short film aims to explore and show the other side of the Democratic Republic of Congo that is often ignored or misinterpreted by the media and unknown to the international community.
This film is about four the most successful Kingston University students. The goal is to inspire students, that are passive or not taking enough actions due to the lack of confidence, budget, time etc. – which keep them away from hitting their goals. The strategy is to focus on students’ stories of how they became successful. One of the most important aspects of the storyboard is to build a relationship between a story teller and a viewer, in this case the film is more engaging and realistic. The relationship is built by the interviewees as they take themselves back to the moments when they were passive, negative and confused. In this case, the viewers are able to familiarise themselves with the story tellers, which take them through the whole story of how they became successful. Followed this, the viewer more likely going to believe the story of success, because it is shown that it starts from nowhere, from failures and it can be delivered by anyone to the most successful and magical moments.
Project focuses on the cultural identities we carry with us. It is an experience film, which shows two art students going through their everyday routes through the city they live in, in this case it is my original hometown Riga, and my new hometown – London. It focuses on the most significant places that describe the city; versus places we see and go through every day, like market, park or busy streets. Video leads from the public spaces to more private- the studio where artists create art, which undoubtedly is subconsciously inspired from the environment they spend most of their time in.
Project – The Inhabitant, in a way is a love story between two people that have never met, and never appear on the screens at the same time, except the end. They both go about their daily lives the same, linked by their passion and drive for creating art, therefore appearing on the screen together only when in connection with art. Videos are made for viewers to immerse and experience different cultures. Background noises are accompanied with music, traditional to the countries represented, to enhance the immersion.
Videos show different aspects of nationality, environment, collective memory and most importantly how it is all linked to our own self-identity.
