African clouds over the Oslo opera

Expressive mobile narratives are in the early stages of design and participative formation. We ask what relations and articulations can be brought to play in the design and enactment of a mobile fictional space in which identity is a core motivation and design feature. Through a design case, we share experiences in the building and trial process of an experimental, mobile “social fiction” called NarraHand. We introduce a new category of expressive mobile narrative, the “reflexive place-space narrative,” along with the term Markers of Identity (MOI).
