Early images of our “diversity storytelling system”

Here are a few early pictures of our prototype for a “diversity storytelling system” at AU.

The idea is that audio stories in physical space can shift which voices circulate, and who has the burden of speaking in public. I’m proud there are some echoes of participatory design, since it was funded in part by the graduate student government at AU, with the sculpture and audio created by students as well.

Inspiration for the project comes in part from last year’s successful SKIN show at the LA Municipal Art by the Leimert Phone Company with Ben Caldwell, François Bar, and Karl Baumann.
