A Strong Trans-disciplinary Approach of Arizona State University to Dignify Children Killed by Firearms

A Strong Trans-disciplinary Approach of Arizona State University to Dignify Children Killed by Firearms With the growing inclination of the society towards giving and getting justice, it is time to highlight the child victims of America. Not everybody who dies is remembered. Not everybody who dies can explain the face of death to the world. It is true how conflicts can bog down big and expensive monuments over design and cost. So, do the bodies of children that were gunned down over disagreements and disputes. The primary goal of the project laid down by ASU will focus on honoring such children who lost their lives in the outbreak of gun violence in the US. The ASU team covers various units including the film making unit, a unit that leads criminal justice and school of criminology, a unit that leads arts, media, and engineering, a unit that leads electrical, computer, and energy engineering, and a unit that leads a Meteor studio, a research laboratory that creates hardware and software systems for virtual reality and augmented reality. The Meteor studio, directed by LiKamWa and Karissa Pelletier, has received a grant amount of dollar fifteen thousand to pursue the project, which will start in early 2021. The principal goal of this project will be to create virtual monuments at the exact locations where the children were killed. To accomplish this task, the team will make the use of applied science to create an app, known as Augmented Reality Children’s Memorial Marker. The major purpose of augmented reality is to bring virtual experiences to life by incorporating digital tools with physical spaces. Anyone with a smartphone can download the application. The memorial app will notify anyone and everyone with a beautiful luminous market who is within the range where the child was gunned down, allowing them to get access to his tragic story through the headphone while his mother speaks in her soft, trembling voice about her beloved martyr. Pizzaro, a brilliant student and a team member of ASU’s project, said that she never intended to use art to draw the picture of violence, rather wanted to explain the circumstantial factors that provoke incidence of violence. The application can be used as an incredible tool to raise public awareness about violence in the US. The sole motive of this tool and the team is to capture young people’s stories that might not otherwise be remembered, or even heard. Violence can affect people of any age group, but one should also remember that violence cannot be the language of solution. The memorial app will open a different layer in the world with monuments at different places. It is true that these projects will never have the power to stop violence completely and that lives will still be lost in conflicts and rivalries. This is just another practical aspect that aims at saving lives and create awareness to change how people perceive violence and save children from getting killed.
