impact The app has been used within Liverpool, indeed it can only be used in Liverpool as part of our exploration of 'reterritorialising the cloud'. It provides an example of how to link historical archival research in new and exploratory ways with the city. Users have an increased understanding of the role the ports played in the city, as well as a critical perspective on current sourcing of food.

Label Mr Seel's iPhone app
Description The Mr Seel's iPhone App lets you discover how we used to grow, make and eat food across Liverpool by scanning food products from the present day. The barcodes on all food packaging are linked to a Universal Product Code database that gives information on what a product is. Supermarkets use these codes to access details about a product including its price. When you scan a product with the Mr Seel's App it links to our own database of memories and historical notes that tell you about how food was grown, cooked and eaten in the past. Just as the local food movement is transforming the global food system, our app seeks to transform Universal Product Codes into Local Memory Codes which uncover our local food heritage.
