DaDa Box is an interactive storytelling object for entertaining. It adopts the idea of “Collage” from Dadaism, the cultural movement in 1910s, allows a person to generate stories by a simple tangible action: shaking. When the box is shaken, a story contained inside switches its order randomly by sentence, and starts playing to the listener.
The first application is a poem generator. The poem by Kurt Schwitters is stored in the box. With each shaking action, different orders of this poem are generated and played.
