telepuppet.tv

telepuppet.tv (a project by Ali Momeni and Nima Dehghani) uses cameras embedded in puppets to capture, catalog and connect experiences of immigration across time and space on our planet.  telepuppet.tv consists of three layered platforms for storytelling:

  1. a crowd-sourced platform for gathering immigrant stories using the perspective and information-gathering possibilities of two puppets with eyes (camera) and ears (microphone) who are shipped around the world
  2. a live-performance platform for storytelling in public space with a mobile puppet theater that incorporates urban video projection
  3. a cloud-based platform for cataloging and broadcasting stories as live streams, or edited off-line episodes.

telepuppet.tv sets off in June 2014.
