Everyone has a story that's influenced by a history. This constant need to understand who we are becomes even more complicated when we consider the intersection of our many identities. aniani is a mobile platform that aims to ignite a new kind of conversation for families to have about their own histories that prioritizes the complexity of human relationship. Translating to both window and mirror, aniani allows families to define the influence of those from whom they come as either a reflection or separation of who they are. Families create profiles for people important to their story and engage with investigative activities that allow them to develop far more interesting and vital connections to their ancestors than lines on a paper.
