Exploded Stories is the name given to a unit of teaching I lead at the Royal College of Art. It explores the multiple ways in which stories form the backbone of communication practices, including scripts, films, political protests, graphic narratives, play and more.

MA Information Experience design students are encouraged to explore a narrative of their choosing either fiction or fact through a range of short briefs that allow them to persue relevant theory and examples from a variety of fields 

Each student is then required to work up a multimodal and interactive experience of their narrative by the end of the elective.
