How Stories are Changing: Why Living in the Present Is a Disorder

How Stories are Changing: Why Living in the Present Is a Disorder | Design for Online Learning | Scoop.it

"R.U. Sirius: You describe five symptoms — pathologies, really — of “presentist” culture. One of these is “narrative collapse.” Can you explain it for those who haven’t read the book?

 

Douglas Rushkoff: Narrative Collapse is what happens when we no longer have time in which to tell a story."

ooooh, ooooh, ooooh -- here's a piece about storytelling, technology, and 'presentism' that will get you thinking.


Are we experienceing 'narrative collapse'? This is an interivew with Douglas Rushkoff, author of Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now. Rushkoff makes the case that our daily and moment-by-moment interactions with technology are leading to us being always in the present where everything demands our attention and where we are caught up in responding immediately (I probably stated that poorly, but you get the idea).


He goes on to say that this tyranny has some good aspects, and some not so good results. One of them is that our stories are changing.


Over the last few years, when people say to me that storytelling is changing -- that digital storytelling and transmedia storytelling is radically altering stories -- I seriously question the supposition.


Rushkoff is the first one who is making sense about this, and it is the first time that I can say, "Sure, this is happening."


Narrative collapse is when video games and role playing fantasies keep a story going without ever ending it. There is no conclusion. And TV shows are becoming similar -- where there is no conclusion, there is no real protagonist, and the story line is not building to a climax. Think Game of Thrones or Once Upon A Time. Lots of mini-climaxes and cliff-hangers, but resolution never ever comes. For me it's exhausting and I've stopped watching shows like that.


But there are other points Rushkoff makes about story shifting away from finalizing victories into sustainable experiences. Hmmmm -- you'll have to read the article yourself to form your own opinion. For sure, he presents a very balanced view about "presentism" and narratives chaning, pointing out advantages and disadvantages of both.


For myself, I am much more optimistic. Yes, technology is reshaping how we live. And I think it is also reshaping our brain. But when I canvas the whole of the human experience, I still see stories -- and the human dynamics of storytelling in all their glory -- alive and well.


I still love how this article makes me pause and reflect. There is more to this article too about oppression, dropping out, the difficulty in managing multiple realities, etc. What do YOU think about all of this?


Many thanks to fellow curator Gregg Morris for finding and sharing this!

One note from the article regarding content curation:


Curation will guide content

Some argue that readers no longer want curated content, however we believe people always have and always will look to trusted sources for guidance, and that’s where books and magazines will continue to add value.

It’s not uncommon for designers to confuse a beautiful looking product with one that works beautifully. A great technique for creating smarter, better products is to approach them using story-centered design.
