Objective

For Bristol residents to rediscover the local environment, share memories of the city and uncover the stories that other people had left behind. The inspiration for Hello Lamp Post Bristol came about by combining two playful ideas: the city being thought of as a diary and so much of the city’s infrastructure being labelled with unique identifier codes. These were used to reference locations in a way that is more human, fun and playful.
