How can we customize and combine physical things with digital content to create an enhanced personalised gift?
Our Hybrid Gifting project held its first meeting on the 9th of July, during which the project team was introduced to the Chronicle platform.
Card Making and Bridal Shower Workshops are being planned at Debbie Bryan, a Nottingham-based independent creative retailer to support stakeholders through the different stages of the ‘gifting’ process for hybrid artefacts. Focusing on the complex giver/receiver relationship, participants will be introduced to tagging technology, receive support on how to produce a ‘gift’ for someone else and how to link digital content within their ‘gifts’.
More details will follow shortly.
