Masaki Fujihata’s BeHere: The Past in the Present (2018 –) is an augmented reality installation and a mobile phone application. In this chapter, Lushetich and Fujihata focus on three areas: a) the latent – semi-visible – image emerging from what they call ‘digital frottage’; b) mediated and remediated co-presence; and c) the affective anarchive (an archive that is also not an archive), in order to articulate the ways in which vast quantities of found, data-processed images of a bygone Hong Kong era combine with micro- and meta-events, phenomenal, and micro-temporal human scales to co-create prosthetic memory.
