In May, the Urban Writing House was host to the wonderful Hannah Brasier.
Hannah’s project-based research is developing models for interactive documentary specific to the affordances of the network. Hannah is specifically interested in how noticing, listing, and multilinear structures of documentary film practice perform the mess of the world. Hannah is a member of the nonfictionLab at RMIT, has presented at the Australian Screen Production and Education Research Association annual conference, The World Cinema and the Essay Film Conference, and is currently working on a chapter for a forthcoming anthology on interactive documentary. Hannah was a visiting PhD scholar at the University of Leeds during 2015. Hannah is currently working on finishing her PhD dissertation and writing an upcoming presentation for the Visible Evidence Conference in Montana, US.
While in the Urban Writing House, Hannah was writing about her practice of listing to notice from an actor-network perspective in attempt to see how her interactive documentary practice performs rather than represents the messiness of the world.
