Creative Lab Seed Project: Tasting Words


Tasting Words is a signature creative practice as research project funded by the Creative Lab. The project is lead by Associate Professor Sandra Gattenhof and Dr Donna Hancox. The research team includes other QUT researchers/practitioners – Dr Lee McGowan, Sorin Oancea, Matthew Strachan and Nathan Sibthorpe. Tasting Words investigates how individuals can develop a sense of community and shared memory by engaging transmedia and locative storytelling practices with geo-located mapping data that results in a performative durational installation. To date, Tasting Words has developed through two creative development phases culminating in a work-in-progress showing in September 2017. The next creative phase is scheduled for early 2018.
