In my research, I explore mixed reality applications developed to engage and sustain collaborative and participatory digital narratives. In particular, I provide a theoretical context for a collaborative research project, The (re-)Mapping Moby Project, to illustrate how augmented reality tools and social media applications are used to sustain a critical/creative reading of Herman Melville's 1851 work Moby-Dick through participatory, performative, and locative digital practices. I address how both 'texts' and 'bodies' assume ontological properties through interfaces and responses that foreground affect, and I demonstrate methods to map locative and narrative shifts as they move from print to digital forms.
