Turns is a social collaboration based on the idea of revealing and then discovering one’s major turning point life experience in relation to those of others. The project is a “community building” one focused on the collection and sharing of a life story which stands out as an experiences so significant that a decision resulted which turned life’s direction.
By sharing your experience you are enabled to explore your narrative in relation to those of others as social memory. Linking these to the Turn’s database provides the opportunity for public access to research into lives lived under many circumstances and time periods, seen through many different lenses and filters. Apart from the online access, the site is accessible at museums and community kiosks. Launch
