Google and Queerstories- My Mother’s Kitchen

I produced My Mother’s Kitchen in partnership with Maeve Marsden’s Queerstories and Google’s Creative Lab. It’s a kind of deconstructed podcast and roll-a-ball game mashup that centres on stories from the childhood kitchens of eight LGBTQI+ individuals. It is a web-based experience, designed to be viewed on a mobile or tablet device (it does not work on desktop).

When a user launches the experience they see a grid of eight interconnected and hand-drawn kitchen maps. Each kitchen is the home of eight mini audio stories told by a storyteller from the LGBTQI+ community about their childhood.

My Mother’s Kitchen premiered at the Sheffield Documentary Film Festival in 2019.

This is an example of one of the mini audio stories from poet and academic Quinn Eades.
