theme for this research project is memory. Human associative flows
and computer generated threads.
conditions: a set-up for testing of a Flash tool. Four persons tell
us personal memories in short, looped movies stored in a database.
They look straight into the camera, sometimes they glance at the
person telling a memory, sometimes they react with other means.
The sequences are controlled by an hidden, almost intuitive navigation.
No buttons for click and start. More touch and feel. The randomness
in the selection created of the application.
set-up creates a narrative framework of personal statements. Fragments
that can be viewed in new orders and sequences. The intention here
is to broaden the narrative tools in interactive storytelling with
a physical navigation. A common theme for the content in the statements
supports this associative narration. Selected theme: childhood.
Visual images from childhood. Yet another element is added: colour.
overall issues we want to examine:
Can the human memory's associative process act as a framework when
creating mock-ups for interaction?
Can the loop as a narrative element support this process?
