The Object of the Story

We ran a workshop called The Object of the Story for the Making Day at Mix 2013, introducing our work and exploring how digital technology is offering new platforms for telling stories. Objects often spark stories or memories, from the jewellery we wear to the ornaments in our homes. Using RFID technology  (found in libraries and Oyster cards), we taught the group how to attach audio stories to objects. In just one hour, they worked in pairs to write and record stories connected to a selection of objects that we brought along. Tags attached to the physical objects trigger the stories, which you can listen to below. The photo below shows the group with their objects.
