Semi Permanent Sydney hosted the first public installation of the Cube, an experimental platform for interactive storytelling developed by Google Creative lab.
The cube tells six different stories, which starts separately on the six faces of the cube but quickly intertwine as the characters interact. Each story has a main character based on one of the “seven basic plots” : Overcoming the Monster, Rags to Riches, The Quest, Voyage and Return, Tragedy and Rebirth. The seventh plot, Comedy, was too enticing to leave on just one face.
I played with the cube and as you go, you can follow one character as they move through the cube, stay on a face, or watch more than one face at a time. You control the cube, hence the story, and the narrative path you take is up to you.
Thanks Google crea lab !
