Stories Asunder: Tales for the Internet of Things

Monday, March 16

Austin Convention Center


In the future, even inanimate objects will be squawking for your attention. Let’s give them something interesting to say!

We experiment with site-specific storytelling. Asunder is an Austin-based mobile app that uses iBeacons for non-linear hyper-local stories. Two projects in Amsterdam are the HearUsHere augmented audio platform and a museum project that unlocks the stories of Dutch Golden Age paintings.

Our panel will discuss:
• New narrative patterns of site-specific storytelling
• Best practices for content that is site-specific, nonlinear, and dispersed
• Using stories + IoT reconnect us to our surroundings

Join us as we build the future of storytelling by re-purposing the IoT for the public sphere.
