Why Multimedia (does not) suck – an answer to Mike Davis

by gregg
While Mike has several valid and well argued points, I don’t agree with his basic premise, that Multimedia/web documentaries lose in storytelling. Here’s my answer, Mike. Thanks for being ambitious on the behalf of online storytelling – not many picture editors are!

Does story telling lose in multimedia?

by gregg
This will be the first time I’ve written about multimedia here. What prompts this first? I’ve judged a couple competitions lately so had to suffer through a bunch of multimedia pieces as part of the process. Given a choice, I avoid multimedia like the plague. Why? Because most of it sucks. Even the name sucks. A newspaper or magazine or book is multi media: words, design, photography, printing. Even radio is multi media: words and music.

by gregg
Viewers can interact with two actors and hear their train of thoughts either simultaneously or separately, depending on how they move the dial. Together it truly does make for a jumbled audio track, but I really like this idea of enabling users to alter the storyline by providing synced but separate audio tracks.

Duo pour 13 mots et un paysage - Par Karine Lebrun avec Christine Lapostolle

by gregg
Duo pour 13 mots et un paysage" est une rencontre entre un lecteur et un écrivain. Karine Lebrun (artiste plasticienne) a proposé à Christine Lapostolle un dialogue qui prendrait appui sur ses textes et puiserait dans la littérature. UNE RENCONTRE J’ai proposé à Christine Lapostolle un dialogue qui prendrait appui sur ses textes et puiserait dans la littérature. Pour Christine Lapostolle, je suis un lecteur qui sort de l’opacité; un lecteur qui agit et qui déplace la forme conventionnelle des relations écrivain/lecteur. Le dialogue prend la forme d’un diptyque vidéo dont la trame est constituée de 13 mots. Nous partageons 13 mots et chaque mot ouvre un espace spécifique que nous avons investi avec nos propres référents. Dans la vidéo de droite, Christine parle autour des mots que je lui ai proposés, dans la vidéo de gauche, je réponds à ses propos produisant par ricochet mon point de vue singulier. Ce dialogue est nourri de réflexions autour des possibilités d’action et de résistance qu’offrent l’écriture et la littérature.
