Material 6 – i-Docs Symposium and Blog

i-Docs is a platform for people interested in interactive documentaries: its is a website and a Symposium.

From the website:

“This site is for people involved with or interested in interactive documentary. We call this work “i-docs” – a term coined by Sandra Gaudenzi who was one of the co-founders of the i-Docs project. The website is a space for news, analysis and dialogue between practitioners, researchers, students and enthusiasts – a place where we hope you can learn, reflect and expand your understanding of the field. The website is run on a community model. If you would like to contribute a post on the aesthetic, ethical, political or business aspects of i-docs then we would like to hear from you. We welcome shorter news-based posts as well as longer academic work and dissemination of research – contact i-Docs  for more information”.

Material 1 – The Idea of a Collaborative Web Documentary Manifesto

Open-source project – create a Web Documentary Manifesto (Zeega project, unfortunately not online anymore).

“In a webdoc the documentary becomes everything: the platform, the content, the architecture, the way of interaction and participation. Documentary is the case that holds all our form and content. Following this, interactivity is necessarily intrinsic in the term”.
