The Shape of Story is an interactive story circle experience in which participants collectively create a story line-by-line. Artificial intelligence in narrative understanding is used in conjunction with a symbolic visual language in order to visualize this story in real-time. The result is a communally created narrative art piece.
The Expressive Machinery Lab (formerly ADAM Lab) explores the intersection between cognition, creativity, and computation through the study of creative human endeavors and by building digital media artifacts that represent our findings. Applications of our findings range from AI-based digital performance to interactive narrative experiences to educational media design and development.
