This paper explores an exhibition founded on the prior research of the two primary authors. The Stories in Form exhibition held in 2012 presented new work by Australian designers which explored the authorís design framework called the Product Narrative. The Product Narrative is a four-part framework intended to guide designers during the design development process, enabling stories to be embedded into products.
This co-authored paper is an account of how this design framework, which was largely relegated to the academic sphere, was used as the conceptual basis for the exhibition. The process was ultimately one of collaboration that enabled the research to be tested by others, expand it beyond its traditional form and ultimately share the research with a wider audience.
Firstly, the storytelling framework or Product Narrative will be outlined. Secondly, the case study exhibition Stories in Form will be discussed, including positioning the exhibition in relation to creative research output within the context of a university environment. Thirdly, communicating the Product Narrative beyond the products, through the graphic design and spatial nature of the exhibition will be described.
