Gloria de Goita is a small town in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil, famous for its colorful handcrafted wooden puppets. The dolls are perceived as intrinsic to Northeast  Brazil’s culture, but the artisans have been struggling to sell them due to a lack of appeal to new generations. Goita’s Crane seeks to integrate the artisans’ dolls with elements from the “crane claw” arcade game as a means to spur social and educational interest in them. As such, the interactive display could be developed to promote  engagement with cultural heritage.
