    TACENDA is an interactive audio-visual storytelling experience for mobile devices which presents real life stories on a virtual train ride specifically designed for personal mobile devices (not tablets, laptops). Using audio soured form the BBC's Listening Project, it presents the true lived stories of people from a variety of backgrounds as bite-sized chunks, designed to be contemplated over the span of a real-life train journey or commute. -- TACENDA is an artpiece, platform and interactive experience that comments on the nature of mundanity and alone-ness in the midst of a crowd (like a train commute), completely unassisted by the portable worlds we now hold on hand-held devices. It is there, under the guise of a game and the sanctuary of fantasy that we chose to confront viewers with the realities of the everyday, while assuring those who have shared their stories the cathartic experience of knowing somebody is listening to and understanding their struggles, thoughts and dreams regardless of mundanity or extravagance. -- The story extracts that are exhibited in the demo are a highly edited and curated selection from the already curated BBC's Listening Project, so all audio is spoken by people who have experienced the realities of their stories. There was be no better speaker. -- this is not a real product, but a student project DEMO demonstrating how existing content can be used to create interactive experiences. We do not work for or represent the BBC, though we would be pleased to catch their attention with the project. original voices + stories : BBC Listening Project -- Read Less
