Precious and treasured stories were collected from people, community groups and archives in Lincoln and teased into wardrobes and everyday items for a multi-sensory installation, Repositorium.
An assembly of archival objects, a wardrobe, a dresser and a bureau, hold memories borrowed from the people of Lincoln. Through a playful use of embedded technology and sensory design, Repositorium brings technology and humanity together in an accessible installation exploring universal themes.
“I believe public opinions around technology and humanity are too dichotomous: Technologies are developing rapidly to respond to our physicality and personal information. Seeing ourselves as lacking control over this, or as being intrinsically separate from technology will, I believe, lead to an immoral and anti-human digital culture.”
– Thomas Buckley
Watch this film about Repositorium, where artist and storyteller Thomas Buckley talks about how he engaged with local communities and archival objects to retell stories of the city through the multi-sensory installation.
