Universal Packaging System by Patrick Sung

BLA-BLA an Interactive Tale
Vincent Morisset’s BLA BLA is an interactive tale that explores the fundamental principles of human communication. The user makes the story possible: without interaction the characters remain inert, waiting for the next interaction. The user clicks, plays and searches through the simple, uncluttered scenes.
Each of the six chapters in the story depicts a different aspect of communication: learning a language, making small talk, expressing emotions, etc. Rich in opportunities for discovery, BLA BLA illustrates these concepts through endearing yet perplexing characters.
The Infinite Adventure Machine - iPad App
Commissioned by Microsoft Research at Cambridge, The infinite Adventure Machine is a computer program that generates fairy-tale plots.
Based on the work of Vladimir Propp, who reduced the structure of russian folk-tales to 31 basic functions, the application works of a set of principles, and generates story scenes on-the fly. The job of the reader is to fill in the gaps and make the narrative whatever they like. Great for encouraging creativity and excitement for storytelling at an early age.
The project is to be featured in the upcoming ‘Glitch Fiction’ Exhibition in Paris 12th - 18th September 2011, so if you’re about go check it out.
