Abstract

Traces is an immersive audio storytelling experience designed to connect visitors viscerally and intentionally with(in) the space of St Fagans National Museum of History, Wales. Using subtlety and the senses as orienting devices, it encourages participants to explore the site in atypical ways; ways that explicitly encourage them to feel and to touch. Traces (Olion in the Welsh language) can be either a single person or partner experience, the latter featuring moments of deep interaction and play. In this paper we introduce three aspects of the Traces project relating to emotions in digital cultural heritage work. Firstly, we introduce Traces as an intervention designed specifically to embrace and elicit ‘feeling’ (activating the affective qualities of St Fagans as a site, and of the media we were employing). Secondly, we introduce our approach to evaluating the affective dimensions of immersion in Traces (eliciting spoken, written and drawn responses). Thirdly we overview participant responses, reflecting on the impacts of work situated at the emotional nexus of sites, story and the senses.
