Whisper Jars: ITP Winter Show 2008

Whisper Jars by Kacie Kinzer and Michael Rosenthal is one of the first things I checked out at the ITP Winter Show 2008 in NYC. It allows the user to leave a secret, which in turn can be heard by the next user. It’s a great combination of art and electronics that works perfectly.

A whisper jar is a magical container in which people can whisper a story or secret. When someone opens the jar later on, the secret escapes for them to hear. Whoever hears the secret can then respond to what they have just heard, or come up with something new to whisper, and the cycle begins again.
