Each piece of story text can be dragged onto a workbench, positioned, reordered, merged with other fragments, and deleted. A sharing mechanism invites readers to create their own stories from the raw material of the house’s hundred-year history, and explore what others have found and created.
What I slowly realized I wanted to explore was something that felt more like magnetic narrative. In the final version of the piece, fragments aren’t static text but dynamic objects that can merge with each other, remember their origins, know how to describe themselves succinctly or verbosely, even stay aware of their relationship to each other, turning a name into pronoun in a fragment below or to the right of another with the same name.
