Growing up with the legacy of the Jewish Holocaust: audio stories of Jewish children

The Jewish Museum in Berlin makes good use of audiovisual technologies to engage its visitors. One of these involves the presentation of audio stories of Jewish children growing up with the legacy of the Jewish Holocaust. The stories are accessed through individual sets of headphones that are spread around a large (AstroTurf–like covered) green room. Each of the children's stories has an accompanying light–box that displays personal information about their subject and a seating area for visitors to sit in while they listen to the stories. The arrangement is both visually dramatic through the function of the light–boxes as visual accents and calming through the general ambience of the exhibition space. The use and arrangement of audiovisual technologies in this way helps to promote visitor engagement with both the individual exhibition displays and more generally with the exhibition experience.

Murmur: location-specific audio stories

"[murmur] is an archival audio project that collects and curates stories set in specific Toronto locations, told by Torontonians themselves. At each of these locations, a [murmur] sign with a telephone number and location code marks where stories are available. By using a mobile phone, users are able to listen to the story of that place while engaging in the physical experience of being there. Some stories suggest that the listener walk around, following a certain path through a place, while others allow a person to wander with both their feet and their gaze. ...

[murmur] was first established in Toronto's Kensington Market in 2003. That same year projects were launched in Vancouver's Chinatown and along St. Laurent Boulevard in Montreal, and over the past few years [murmur] has grown and expanded across other neighbourhoods in Toronto, Calgary, and San Jose, California. [murmur] Edinburgh launched in Leith in January 2007, and [murmur] Dublin Docklands launched in May 2007. [murmur] Australia launched in Geelong in February 2009."
