In this masterclass Dr Judith Aston (University of the West of England’s i–Docs group and the Digital Cultures Research Centre) will consider what the principles of collaboration and embodied interaction are, and how apply to interactive documentary. The masterclass will build upon her recent reflections on interactive documentary (http://i-docs.org/2016/03/27/interactive-documentary-what-does-it-mean-and-why-does-it-matter/ ).
Judith plans to use Michael Schrage’s Mastering the Dynamics of Creative Collaboration, and Rebecca Solnit’s Wanderlust and A Paradise in Hell to examine different types of creative collaborations and the experiences they can provide. Finally, parts of Paul Dourish’s The Foundations of Embodied Interaction will be used to think about Patricia Zimmerman’s call for radical media practices and forms that ‘animate contentious public spheres’.
Numbers in this masterclass are limited and we are making this available to non/fictionLab members first.
