The Crab Cooker, Vincent Eaton, story, memory

In my continuing series, MATCHES, which consists of me reaching into a plastic bag filled with matches I’ve collected over the years, then pulling one out, and making a short video on what I immediately recall about them.

Matches – Tagawa (New digital story series)

Tagawa Restaurant and macth book

I’m introducing a new series of videos, or Digital Stories, on matches—match books I have collected from places I’ve been. These videos will be short, none running longer than two minutes. They will consist of whatever arises from of my memory when I hold the matches in my hand. I’ve been collecting matches for decades and I’ll be reaching into the jar, pulling one out, see what I remember.

Is this not just too, too exciting?

By the way, Digital Storytelling is based on the use of mostly still images, told in the personal voice of the storyteller, using images from one’s personal collection. I’ve been doing this for years. For more info, check out Center for Digital Storytelling.

Here’s the first one book of matches. Tagawa.
