Piss and Vinegar

Cops, full of piss and vinegar, share their experience of life "on the job."


Collective Storytelling

A collection of audio stories from retired cops reflecting on their lives "on the job." Piss and Vinegar stitches together a narrative of what it's like to be a cop. The stories are accompanied by "artifacts" that the subjects provided that showcase some of those memories.

User Scenario
Users will approach display case and view objects. They'll be able to listen to the stories associated with the objects through the screen interface. Each cop will have his own page that includes a photo, short bio, any other associated objects (e.g. newspaper clippings, photos), and all of the audio clips. There will be a primary audio clip that's tied to the object displayed and several other clips with additional stories.
