The Cloakroom is an art installation, a space for discovering and sharing personal stories. It is made out of jackets and a whole array of objects which are linked to recorded stories of different people. To experience the stories, visitors of the installation put on a jacket and find objects in its pockets. Each of the objects is linked to recordings of personal stories. By placing the objects in the basket, the stories start to play.
