“WHAT IS YOUR STORY?” EXhIBIT

There are very few burdens greater than carrying the weight of an untold story. People constantly have trouble finding their voice for fear of being judged. Books, however, are the silent storyteller. ‘What is Your Story’ is an interactive installation created in collaboration with Spark Corps and our partners Booknbrunch, currently making its way between cities from the Toronto Design Offsite to the Museum of Design Atlanta. It is made up of anonymous, handwritten stories displayed in used books—and it gives viewers the opportunity to respond to these stories by sending a supportive message via postcard.
