The Jake Barton speeches on oral histories demonstrate the importance of sharing personal experiences. The principal and founder of Local Projects is designing the media for the 9/11 memorial and museum. His work with Local Projects involves interactive media installations in museums and public spaces.
The Jake Barton speech describes the innovative ways he uses media to tell stories and share experiences. The work he is doing for the 9/11 museum is a perfect example. Rather than having an objective narration of the events of that day, visitors hear the voices of other visitors and collected oral histories describing where they were and what happened on September 11th. This incredibly moving and immersive commemoration gives an authentic experience to tourists, grounded in human empathy and love.
