Hybrid Gifting

Two workshops have been held by the Hybrid Gifting Project.

The first – a card making workshop, took place at Debbie Bryan – an independent creative retailer based in Nottingham on 2nd November. The workshop focused on the giver/receiver relationship supporting participants to creative a ‘gift’, linking digital content and introducing tagging technologies.

The second workshop – Christmas themed – took place at the Mixed Reality Lab at the University of Nottingham on the 7th December. Participants got into the Christmas spirit by making Christmas cards and adding their individual digital layers of content.

Hybrid Gifting

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.
