The city is an archive of stories. A square maintains the memories of the city’s inhabitants, each story from a different perspective. Each building, each stone, adds value to the city through the stories it holds.

 

The Story Miner is an archeologist, and an ambassador of these stories. He collects subjective stories from his neighborhood, and emphasizes their value for the area.

The Story Miner collects his stories through recording. To ensure authenticity of the stories of the inhabitants it is important that the interviews are published as transparently as possible. The Story Miner therefore stores the recordings of his research.
