Seven designers participated in a recent Sydney Powerhouse workshop to learn and produce digital stories.
Digital storytelling merges the concepts of oral history and interview, using new media technologies to produce autobiographical mini-movies. They present a personal point of view through the collaboration of voice narration, a collection of images, music and photographs. This project offered participants the opportunity to contemplate their design practice through a new medium and to present for the viewer a significant insight into design processes, inspirations and working life. It also gave them the opportunity to collaborate and network with industry peers who they might not otherwise get the opportunity to work with, such as curators, editors and writers.
