Arduinos Provide Interactive Exhibits for About $30 | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
A tiny programmable computer has brought the price of interactivity down sharply in the last few years for museums and galleries.

“When you can use technology like a paintbrush, we’ll see artists invent new ways to use these tools,” he said. “It’s really exciting that artists no longer need a Ph.D. in programming to create amazing interactive works.”

Are We In 'Narrative Collapse'?!

Are We In 'Narrative Collapse'?! | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
Vision Critical Summit speaker Douglas Rushkoff gives a preview of his keynote and shares his perspective on the evolution of brand storytelling.

Via Karen Dietz
Kajsa Hartig's insight:

"Given the attention span of customers today, companies know that they can’t tell the traditional stories with a beginning, a middle and an end. Most companies compensate for this by creating brand narratives in a disjointed way, through mashups and sequence advertising. Rather than responding to a post-narrative environment, companies resort to telling a story that unfolds over the course of several commercials."

Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 19, 3:18 PM

OK -- here the author of the book Present Shock, Douglas Rushkoff, gives us his perspective on storytelling and branding.


Did you know we are in the post narrative age? That "narrative collapse" has happened? That we can no longer tell stories with a beginning/middle/end? That technology has killed narrative? That we don't need narrative and are better off without it? That people really only want facts? Apparently this has been going on since 2013.


What a bunch of hooey. I find these statements unbelievable -- but they do make for provocative interviews and high book sales, IMHO.


Why am I so skeptical? Because we are hardwired for stories. We think and talk in stories. As my colleague Jim Signorelli says, he hasn't noticed anyone giving a standing ovation lately for a pie chart.


I am thinking a more solid reason behind why a lot of narratives are not working in branding are because they are either mediocre stories, or businesses really don't understand their customers so there's a mismatch between the stories and the audience.


Frankly, mediocre storytelling is rampant in business, sorry to say. It was really hard to find great stories to cite in our book "Business Storytelling For Dummies". Like anything in life, if you want to get good at storytelling, it takes dedicating time and resources.


I do like what Rushkoff has to say about the use of big data and how it can lead to trouble.


Read the article and tell me what you think. I'd love to know your perspective.

Simon Staffans: Why you should give the audience a place in your story

Simon Staffans: Why you should give the audience a place in your story | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Kajsa Hartig's insight:

"

In the television industry we’re very much about controlling most parts of a production. Not only that, there’s often so much to control that we turn into control freaks – everything in order to keep the schedule, keep the budget and keep ourselves sane. Today though, this does not mirror the way the world works, just as the TV schedule in the back of the newspaper no longer reflects how people are accessing content today. An exciting – if daunting – way of mirroring the real world and giving the audience a meaningful part in your content is to intentionally break part of your IP and/or your story. Then let the audience piece it back together in whatever way they see fit and celebrate their efforts and end result. This could be a narrative that is intentionally left unfinished with clear prompts for the audience to fill in as storytellers, a flawed character that needs to be pieced back together, or something else. The key is to step back and trust the audience to take good – if chaotic – care of the story world they’ve grown to love and the narrative strands you’ve left hanging for them.

The art of storytelling, according to the founders of StoryCorps and Humans of New York | TED

The art of storytelling, according to the founders of StoryCorps and Humans of New York | TED | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it

"Between them, Dave Isay, TED Prize winner and founder of StoryCorps, and Brandon Stanton, founder of Humans of New York, have collected more than 75,000 stories from regular people around the world. Isay collects his stories as audio files, while Stanton takes a photo and then interviews his subject — but they’ve both developed fascinating techniques for helping people to open up. They sat down recently to talk about their work and their thoughts on what makes for an honest, open interview environment."

A supportive culture breeds good stories.Engage deeply. Interrupt kindly.Trust in people.Do not commodify your stories.If you have a calling, pursue it relentlessly.
Via Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)
Kajsa Hartig's insight:

E"ngage deeply. Interrupt kindly. People aren’t very good at knowing how to tell their own stories, says Stanton, and that means that they’re often vague and imprecise. Cutting through that is part of the interviewer’s job."
