Plott.me

Fall, 2008


Plott.me is an iPhone/web application for creating and sharing guided stories

This project is an exploration of the relationship between narrative and physical space, and investigates how an immersive context transforms traditional narrative form. We were interested in exploring the relationship between narrative and physical space, specifically investigating how an immersive context transforms traditional narrative form. Plott.me provides online tools to record and upload audio and images, as well as geo-tag them with locations. This enables authors to record their own location-based stories. We developed on two platforms to explore the delivery of location-specific content: the iPhone and Google Maps' 'Street View'. We enlisted the iPhone for its ability, as a mobile device, to use natural movement through physical space allowing for a sustained narrative experience. And we leveraged Google's database of compelling panoramic imagery in Street View to enable an alternate exploration of physical space online.
