I WAS HERE: A service to engage families exploring and preserving stories about their city
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Nowadays, most aspects of our daily lives have been changed by digital technology. Digital content as a new medium has been used widely as memorial to bring back memories of a person, an event or old times. Since all the data probably will exist longer than our lifetime, how should we deal with them and treat them as a heritage? In this project, I am exploring the possibilities of an innovative service that would engage people to preserve memories in the digital age by sharing their stories with future generations. I aim at result that not only allows people to collect stories, but also brings new perspective on how people view their present lives in the community. Moreover, I hope this design will not be limited to Norsjö municipality, but could also bring an extra value to other small communities with similar needs.
