On 19th March I conducted a 3 hour workshop with my fellow Interactive Digital Media colleagues to explore ideas of narrative for What Goes Around.
To kick off the session, each participant told a story about and item they had brought to the workshop that had a personal significance.
The object I chose was the FM3 Buddah Machine purchased at Sonar Festival a few years back.
Kat chose a piece of jewellery given to her by her ex and that belonged to his mother.
Next, we each chose five random images from print outs of photographs originally sent into space on the Voyager probe in 1977. The task was to write a story based on the sequence of five images.
Richard’s story, based on these images:
(The text of this story can be read here.)
KP’s story, based on these images:
As you can hear above, each of us read out our stories.
The final task was to combine the two each of the images originally chosen with two new images each, totaling 12 images. These were then arranged collaboratively into another story, as you can see in the following images.
