Stories Table

Stories Table was a creative writing-based interactive art installation that we built for the Sage Gateshead. We used a short-throw projector and a repurposed table from the Art Therapy project.  The installation contained a number of pieces of creative writing by schoolchildren, as well as audio content. Users interacted with the table using small, themed art pieces, each of which was tagged with a marker. When users placed a piece of art on the table, this tag was used to identify related poems, audio and short stories, and this content appeared around the art on the table.
