Historio.org is a website dedicated to questioning fixed understandings of history by placing historical fragments (sound bites in this case) into new and surprising contexts. Users are invited to download the sound bite of the month and insert it into their own visual accompaniments. These visuals can include anything from still images to animation with no restrictions on how the visuals are presented. The only rule is that the audio bite itself must remain intact.

User videos are then uploaded back onto the historio.org site in order to create a database of collective and personal refigurations of history. Be sure to embed the audio bite in your finished video so the two play back seamlessly.

Participating is free and you are not required to create an account. Simply download, create, and upload. That’s it!
