The notion of “complexity” has been coming up lately across i-doc presentations I have been attending. I am looking forward to this masterclass by Judith Aston from the UK.
Overview of Judith Aston masterclass from the non/fictionLAB blog post Docuverse presents Snapshots 2: A talk by Judith Aston (written by Hannah Brasier):
Judith’s talk will show the trajectory that she has taken over the years, discussing the various projects that she’s worked on along the way. This will include videodisc, CD-ROM, installations and live performance. Throughout this time, a consistent theme in her work has been her belief in the potential for interactive documentary and non-linear forms of representation in helping us to better understand complexity. Ending up with her take on where interactive documentary might be heading, she will argue that it’s ‘intertwingularity’ makes it an important tool for twentieth first century problem solving. She will also make a plea for interactive documentary to remain an open-ended field of enquiry, incorporating a range of forms and processes and not becoming all consumed by current interest in virtual and augmented realities.
