For heritage professionals, the Emotive application will provide a powerful storytelling engine and a set of rich digital media assets that can be used to create detailed characters and narratives featuring archaeological sites or collections of artefacts. For visitors, Emotive will offer dramatic, emotionally engaging stories that can be experienced while at a cultural site or remotely. Wherever visitors are, they can follow characters, look for clues and explore environments alone or with family and friends. The output of this process will be a number of prototype tools and applications for heritage professionals and visitors that produce interactive, personalized, emotionally resonant digital stories for museums and cultural sites. In heritage locations, narrative tends to be used narrowly, as a method to communicate the findings and research conducted by the domain experts of a cultural site or collection. It’s typically a single-user experience and can often lack emotional resonance or impact. Emotive seeks to change that.
