The Story of the Stuff

In the aftermath of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, more than half a million letters and 65,000 teddy bears poured into Newtown, Connecticut. The interactive web documentary, The Story of the Stuff, explores the phenomenon of spontaneous memorials by tracking the disposition of the condolence items sent to Newtown and examining the larger phenomenon of pubic responses to tragedy.
