The Transmedia Museum book
This chapter focuses on personal narratives, individual memory and how the museum operates as a point of intersection between the two, as a facilitator of narrative memory. Digital media are recognised as having a sizeable and ever-increasing effect on the ways in which memory can be, and is being, represented and reconfigured in the early years of the twenty-first century. Digital stories are short multimedia films recognisable by their scrapbook' aesthetic. Second Place was launched in 2011 by the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), which has a history of collaborative video and digital storytelling projects. The Culture Shock digital storytelling project ran from 2008 in the North East of England, and was facilitated by Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums. Many websites devoted to discrete and dispersed personal narratives were launched before the 9/11 Memorial Museum began its own endeavour in 2009.
