Creating Your Stories
Your Stories is an experience specially created for National Museum in Belgrade – as a part of the H2020 project GIFT. Our starting point for this project was that every “big” history (or historic epoch, event, period, war…) is a mosaic of small, personal, or family histories that never or rarely find their way to museum exhibitions.
We suggested to National Museum in Belgrade to open its doors for personal stories and enable visitors to bring their objects that will be 3D scanned and become a permanent part of the digital museum collection. The museum kindly accepted our idea thus starting the six months process leading to the creation of the unique collection of 3D personal objects and stories associated with them.
The first step of the process included a public call inviting visitors to come to the museum with objects that they considered meaningful. A total of 25 visitors brought a variety of items such as clothing, military mementos, children’s toys, and much more. Each piece was carefully 3D-scanned and visitors shared their personal stories about why their specific item should be immortalized in the museum.
