»When attachment to place grows, we start to identify ourselves with these places.« (Dr. M. V. Giuliani, 2003)

How far can personal experiences and stories help to strengthen the connection to a place? Within a series of experiments and prototypes we investigate adequate methods for collecting personal stories in a public context. Furthermore we develop an on-spot installation presenting the collected stories to foster the attachment to place. During the process we explore to what extent analog as well as digital ways can be used to collect and display personal stories. We are working on a crosspoint of three Berlin boroughs Prenzlauer Berg, Mitte and Friedrichshain: in between old and new buildings, natives and new arrivals, proletariat and gated community. A place where many opposites can cause friction.
