Narratives

An experience in honest storytelling, empathy, and vulnerability through interaction between a user’s device and installation. This project was featured in the 2018 BFA Thesis Exhibition at Rutgers University–Mason Gross School of the Arts.

Displayed on a 28’ purple-painted wall, a user can anonymously share their story by scanning a QR code with their phone, then selecting a prompt to respond to. Once submitted, the response appears in live time, along with all given responses to that respective prompt. Each question is framed in relation to a specific feeling based on Robert Plutchik’s Wheel of Emotions. In total, the wall received over 200 responses of all different lengths, stories, and interpretations–some silly, serious, light-hearted, profound.
