1Story

“Peter sat at his desk. Sitting was what Peter was meant to be doing at 3.37pm on a Monday.
In addition to sitting, Peter was also meant to be adding and subtracting, and then typing up the results on his Olympia typewriter, but the rhythmic tak was muted from his side of the cavernous office. This was partly because the black-keyed machine perched on Peter's desk had jammed the 7 and 8 rods, and partly because Peter couldn’t be bothered knocking them back into place again.”

1Story presents a story by Matt Blackwood that is experienced in the Atrium at Federation Square and is set when the space was the Gas and Fuel Building. The narrated story is heard by scanning a large QR code made from thousands of recycled keyboard keys and was presented during the 2013 Sustainable Living Festival.
