Time Telescope is a site-specific digital art installation which allows viewers to explore an area of the city of Newcastle-Gateshead at various points in history. The installation formed part of a project in which a participatory interaction design process was used to engage young people with the heritage of their local area. The telescope itself and the project through which it was designed is discussed in relation to the goals of the project and its impact upon the young participants.
