Timeline / History
2009 – Hamefarers’ Kist|Knitted Remotes
Hamefarers’ Kist|Knitted Remotes is a way of connecting across generations by sharing online photo albums with people who don’t use computers.
The development of the kist was inspired by observing carers and volunteers in care homes and museums in Whalsay, Bressay and Lerwick勒威克小镇 in Shetland share their collective memories 集体记忆 of their communities with both visitors and those in their care. Hamefarers is the Shetland term for the returning diaspora离散的犹太人回归. Shetlanders have historically left the islands for economic reasons, sometimes to return, often not – creating a challenge for how the young, tech-savvy diaspora connect with their less technically connected older relatives.
he small box contains knitted pincushions针织的抱枕, each one has a different pattern which is associated with people, places or events. Placing a ‘knitted remote’ in the box brings up images from a person or event on the screen in the box lid, which can be flicked through. The owner doesn’t need to know how to log on to a computer or how to access the internet: the images are uploaded by the younger relatives through Flickr photosharing: grandchildren on the other side of the world can upload images to their grandparents kist.

2012. 03-04 – March and April 2012 – Craft workshop
Craft workshops in March and April 2012 bring together children, parents and carers at CHAS to imagine and make toys and accessories which enable children to independently access their favourite websites.
The outcome of the this stage of the project is a prototype device which enables young people in CHAS to independently access online content using engaging things that we have designed together. We are keen to hear from technology companies and funders who would be interested in taking the project forward.
2012 – I am network
Sara Nevay’s work for the project includes a projected service experience for a new social network that can be utilised by and for families who visit CHAS and their children with complex communication needs. I Am network explains KISTproject’s future direction. The team are currently exploring avenues for funding and are keen to hear from interested parties in the further development of this project.
