In an innovative use of technology, Matt Blackwood has created a QR code to make two stories he has written available to listeners. The code is on display where the stories themselves take place.
This kind of 'locative' literature, or 'LocLit', enables people to hear stories in the places they happened, so as to create a digitally immersive experience. You can listen to the stories here, or scan the QR code from the image here.
An earlier locative literature project, MyStory, won Blackwood a City of Melbourne Laneway Commission in 2010. MyStory hosts 12 stories written by Blackwood, Tony Birch, Barry Dickins, and Cate Kennedy.
