A Colourful History
Jo Ley has been collaborating with s1t2 on our first ever interactive mural. Based on the history of storytelling and how technological developments (think print press, internet, gaming) have evolved alongside the stories that we have been telling and retelling, creating and recreating for centuries. Amazing concept and what an amazing team. With Jo’s inspired mind focusing on the characters and details of each island, s1t2 will be conjuring up all sorts of magic when they add yet another dimension to the phenomenal piece. Whether it become augmented reality or an online game, s1t2 know interactive technology like no other and are quickly making their mark on the present and future storytelling narrative.
n the above islands you may recognise canonical characters from different eras of storytelling. The first world is the Ancient World where myths and legends of Gods and Deities were born through word of mouth and grand storytellers. Above is a the gaming island where interactive gaming technologies are responsible for building a narrative between the characters, the users and the world in which they coexist. These familiar faces remind us of fun times with the Xbox, Playstation and Computer games that have allowed us to be completely immersed in the digital experience. As the audience if this island, our role changes significantly, from observer to influencer.
