D|N|A - Seven interactive essays on digital nonlinear storytelling

D|N|A - Seven interactive essays on digital nonlinear storytelling | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it
Introduction to Database | Narrative | Archive

 

excerpt:

"Database|Narrative|Archive is a collection of seven 'essays' by nine thinkers and makers in the emergent medium of nonlinear digital storytelling.

 

A profusion of recent scholarly writing and cultural commentary addresses the sprawling, emergent realm of interactive narrative, which is itself part of a profound historical development that has been referred to as “the computerization of culture.” Categories such as “electronic literature,” “interactive database narrative," and ‘transmedia’ scholarship are amongst the many neologisms claiming to describe some of the emergent characteristics of interactive narrative."

Jens Peter Madsen's curator insight, Today, 3:35 AM

Interesting question - More interesting is to study what happens to culture and artistic work when it meets new  media.

I work with the traditional art of storytelling, and study what happens when it´s performed in new digital media.

i-Docs's insight:

"Interactive documentary, or transmedia, or whatever we call it, is still bleeding edge. It'll get a name, as The Goggles told us, once "a lot of people actually like what they see and say to themselves, ‘I want more of that.'" Story is the anchor of the experience, don't forget; don't overwhelm users with too many choices"

Immigrant Nation - A collaborative interactive documentary

Immigrant Nation - A collaborative interactive documentary | Interactive Documentary (i-Docs) | Scoop.it

Immigrant Nation explores our connections to immigration, past and present, through storytelling.

 

At the heart of this project is a simple idea: the U.S. is a nation shaped by immigration, and most families have personal story about it. These stories, whether they happened generations ago or quite recently, are not often shared. We want to bring them to the surface - exploring the interconnectedness of these narratives.

 

Immigrant Nation has three components:
- this web site
- a series of short documentary films
- live events in schools, museums, libraries, film festivals and other public spaces designed to engage diverse communities in sharing their immigrant stories

i-Docs's insight:

“All we know is that traditional rules of filmmaking no longer apply,” Danfung said. “We’re focused on the technical aspect to begin with as there are still big challenges in the capture, workflow, and playback … but I think the even bigger challenge is the new visual language that is going to emerge.”

Stephen Kleckner:  "It’s alluring to see this 360-degree medium as limitless, but this borderless world is not as free of structure as it first appears. Artists face a new set of rules to play by if they intend on creating an intentional, visual, virtual-reality composition."

i-Docs's insight:

This question/answer combination is great: 


“Why make an experimental documentary and not a feature film?”


The answer to that would be that the structure of the project arose organically to match the sprawling nature of the subject matter. It’s not just the time of movies right now, since we have long form TV and online video, and all kinds of new forms coming up. Because it is distributed across so many platforms, Empire is very much of this time.
