Why interactive? | In Media Res

Why interactive? | In Media Res | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

 

"In Media Res is dedicated to experimenting with collaborative, multi-modal forms of online scholarship. Our goal is to promote an online dialogue amongst scholars and the public about contemporary approaches to studying media. In Media Res provides a forum for more immediate critical engagement with media at a pace closer to how we experience mediated texts.

 

Each weekday, a different scholar curates a 30-second to 3-minute video clip/visual image slideshow accompanied by a 300-350-word impressionistic response. We use the title "curator" because, like a curator in a museum, you are repurposing a media object that already exists and providing context through your commentary, which frames the object in a particular way. The clip/comment combination are intended both to introduce the curator’s work to the larger community of scholars (as well as non-academics who frequent the site) and, hopefully, encourage feedback/discussion from that community."

mirmilla's insight:

All this week is dedicated to the interactive documentary.

Designing a multilinear nonnarrative form for interactive documentary - Seth Keen

"This research explores interactive documentary and focuses
on identifying how the affordances of video, computers and the
network can be used to create a web of relations between shots
within an interactive documentary that utilises the multilinear
structure of the Internet. The aim of this investigation is to help
practitioners who do not understand these affordances to learn
what they are, and what is important when making an interactive
documentary online. As an outcome of my inquiry I propose
that documentary practice is transformed in this multilinear
environment, resulting in a reconceptualisation of the term
‘documentary maker’. A practitioner who produces on the Internet
is more accurately named a ‘documentary designer’, and I support
this new role by outlining the affordances of ‘granularity’, ‘remix’,
‘indexing’ and ‘spatial montage’, and how they can be used to
produce an interactive documentary online."

mirmilla's insight:

Another great PhD thesis, this time from Australia, concerning the interactive documentary. Quite promising at first glance.

Interactive, purposeful storytelling meets Virtual Reality at Learn Do Share London with ‘Meet Lucy’

Interactive, purposeful storytelling meets Virtual Reality at Learn Do Share London with ‘Meet Lucy’ | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it
“I think technology acts as a trigger, it invites audiences to open new fictional doors that immediately transports them to another level of consciousness. It allows further engagement; it provokes new thoughts and connections. But that doesn’t mean that technology itself can make stories better; that magic is only in the hands of the teller/creator itself”.

"The original prototype of Klynt, created in 2008, was known as ‘Webdoc Editor’, and brought a ‘choose your own adventure’ function to online documentary narrative. The Honkytonk experiment was successful: the first interactive documentary to ever feature on Le Monde’s website, Journey achieved 1.5 million page views and won the Prix SCAM 2009 Digital Interactive Artwork award. The first public release of Klynt then came in 2011, and was developed in Flash."

Reflections on the Evolving State of the Interactive Documentary | Sunny Side

Reflections on the Evolving State of the Interactive Documentary | Sunny Side | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

"Tom Perlmutter, former Chairman of the National Film Board of Canada, has spearheaded a sweeping digital transformation in NFB film production; with many groundbreaking films and Web documentaries that make use of transmedia techniques. To Perlmutter, the digital landscape is teeming with unimaginable possibilities for Interactive Documentary."

 

"And even though it has been argued that the digital world does as much to divide by tribalizing as it does to connect, my own feeling is that we are actually in a movement to something else.  I think that there is inherent in living with the technology in the ways we do and in the ways that it is evolving  a very important shift in the ways that we know what it is to know.  We are blundering through this transformation, doing it in fits and starts.  But where it is leading us is to some kind of inverse Jungianism.  Not a collective unconscious. But a collective consciousness.

For that very reason the interactive work is becoming the artwork of our age."
