The Marshmallow Championship: A Visual Storytelling Workshop

When we visited Daulat Ram College (University of Delhi), our aim was involve the literature student into the process of visualization. To engage them into the journey of visual imagining. We presented them the MARSHMALLOW CHALLENGE.

The project was to create the highest stable structure using 20 spaghetti sticks, thread, tape and a single marshmallow. Within stipulated time, the teams under the flags of “3 Pipers“, “Analytics“, “Marshmallow Whatevers“, “Fantastic 4” and “SMS” built their own towers.

After Q&A related to the task, we ask them to write the story of their Marshmallow Challenge. Translation is the act of generating meaning. It is a process of transmutation. We ask them then to depict their story into a string of images. We encourage them to draw their narrative into a storyboard.

We selected the best story and storyboard, we reworked it and created a whiteboard animation to showcase their visual understanding.

A story called “Jo Jeeta wohi sikandar” by Fantastic 4.
