THE PROJECT.........................

A collaboration between Sandpit, the Adelaide Smart City Studio and Carbon Neutral Adelaide, The General Story combines smart technologies with insight based narratives to help raise awareness about food waste.

Located in the centre of Adelaide’s food and culinary hub, The Adelaide Central Market, The General Story brings to life some of the most commonly wasted household food items who personally tell their story so users can learn about how to better use the food they buy.

Visitors engage with projection mapped groceries in a mock market stall deisgned by Renate Henschke that come to life with animaitons by Chris Edser. Visitors send text messages to the groceries of their choice who respond with chit chat and recipes.

The project is proudly supported by the Adelaide Central Market Authority, OzHarvest, the Government of South Australia and the City of Adelaide.
