Join The Journey is a research project that explores the new possibilities of non-linear storytelling using mobile devices.
Mobile devices expand interaction between people and the stories they read. However, despite the interactivity technology brings, books still rely on linear, non-interactive narratives. The stories haven’t changed dramatically: people have simply switched to a new platform for reading them. The goal of this project is to explore and experience the possibilities gained in combining mobile devices and nonlinear digital storytelling. Stories can now effect each other, one story can be hidden from another, actions of the user can lead to stories ending differently. I am using interaction technology to change not only the way we read, but more importantly to change storytelling itself.
