How do we use technology and data
to help people feel connected
in a meaningful and personal way?
Stories Become Data event-workshop hybrid is a digital environment created by MiHyun Kim, Assistant Professor of Communication Design
at Texas State University. This project invites participants to add their
own stories to a collective narrative through writing, drawing and animating.
Designed for creative expression and civic imagination, Stories Become Data event-workshop hybrid runs through the processes of conception, design and construction with an element of play, experimentation, and collaboration. Workshop attendees draw their stories based on prompts via wi-fi interconnected iPads. The iPads are projected on an open wall
to show the cumulative process of the participants’ creations. This digital environment creates a space for participants to share and to visualize their stories collectively and simultaneously in real time. It allows individuals to share their stories, giving us an opportunity to see a fuller perspective of how we relate to each other.
