Making Stories

Making Stories is a participatory collaboration between young designers and computer scientists who challenge the short lifespan of daily objects, technologies and materials.

They work with broken, seemingly useless, things, repairing them or creating new objects, which present alternatives to the current economic model characterised by mass-production and -consumption.

The stories ‘behind’ the objects are recorded to reveal the multiple meanings and memories that things carry. These stories, told by owners and users of the objects, are manifestos of the growing consciousness among ordinary people that repairing and re-making objects are viable alternatives to buying and producing.
