Ce qui frappe à première vue lorsque l’on s’intéresse à ce genre d’univers, c’est la constante promesse d’immersion et d’expérience qu’offrent les différentes startups et autres entités du secteur. On parlera par exemple « d’une nouvelle façon de vivre les expériences du quotidien », ou encore d’une manière de « s’immerger totalement dans une autre réalité ». C’est bien évidement ce avec quoi on va pouvoir embarquer le public, car malgré toute volonté de rester critique sur le sujet, il faut admettre que la première fois qu’on essaie un casque, on est tout de suite impressionné par sa capacité à tromper notre cerveau et à se projeter dans une autre réalité. Mais il ne faut pas non plus oublier que ces discours sont des arguments de vente, car on promet non seulement une expérience de consommation unique en son genre mais aussi un engagement du consommateur lui-même encore plus fort : il serait fou de ne pas vouloir vivre ces nouvelles expériences qu’on lui propose, donc vous seriez fous de ne pas investir dans la VR

William Uricchio on Playing with Narrative | Open Documentary Lab at MIT

William Uricchio on Playing with Narrative | Open Documentary Lab at MIT | Documentary Evolution | Scoop.it

excerpt:

"Interactive documentaries come in many different forms, some of their textual structures adhering rather closely to long established narrative traditions; others, explicitly taking the form of mini-narratives that the user can move among and link;

and still others offering rich if disaggregated possibilities to the motivated participant, who can connect the dots into a narrative experience.

Some projects (Alma: A Tale of Violence [Miquel Dewever-Plana & Isabelle Fougère, 2012] is a strong case; Bear 71 [Jeremy Mendes & Leanne Allison, 2012], a weaker one) are essentially retellings of past events and lead inexorably to certain fixed conclusions, despite the fact that users may navigate multiple the routes to that end state. These forms share qualities of the traditional narrative (a definite story arc based on past events, a narrator), even as they encourage excurses and wandering.

Others (Planet Galata – A Bridge in Istanbul [Florian Thalhofer & Berke Bas, 2010] and Question Bridge: Black Males [Johnson, Thomas, Smith and Sinclair, 2012]) require the user to wander and navigate at their own pace, exploring the spaces, characters and issues that they find interesting.

The makers have made choices about what to include and offer structures to help shape and lend coherence to the user experience, but there is no preordained conclusion or story arc other than that conjured up by the user."

mirmilla's insight:

A new and interesting analysis of William Uricchio starting with the big question of what constitutes the narrative up to the "ways to rethink the place of imagination in the domain of the non-fictional".

Very inspiring.
