Concept Exercise

September 15, 2008

American Folklore Revival is an interactive story-quilt that explores a traditional American folk story. The quilt pattern resembles a sequential art or comic format. The story depicted in the quilt’s images is derived from a traditional American murder ballad.  Symbols that are relevant to the story and that may impact a viewer’s perspective of the story, are hidden within the quilt. User interaction with the quilt will activate technologies embedded in the quilt, revealing these symbols. The purpose of the quilt is to spark new interest in quilts in America’s technology driven culture.
