MIT Open Documentary Lab: documentary is a project rather than a genre bound to a particular medium

"Drawing on MIT's legacy of media innovation and its deep commitment to open and accessible information, the MIT Open Documentary Lab brings storytellers, technologists, and scholars together to explore new documentary forms with a particular focus on collaborative, interactive, and immersive storytelling. The Lab understands documentary as a project rather than as a genre bound to a particular medium: documentary offers ways of exploring, representing, and critically engaging the world. It explores the potentials of emerging technologies and techniques to enhance the documentary project by including new voices, telling new stories and reaching new publics. ...

If we are indeed witnessing the emergence of a new form of representation, what can we broker from past moments of change to facilitate our move into the future? How can we evaluate this new work – what descriptive terminology and frameworks for assessment are most useful? What trends can we discern? What are the implications for style, authorship and the craft of filmmaking of these collaboratively sourced and edited moving images? And how can we work with our funding agencies, exhibition venues, and archival systems to give these new and often challenging practices a place in our cultural register?"

Local Projects: growing new audiences through technology

"Local Projects was tasked with growing new audiences through technology for the Cleveland Museum of Art, and created 'Gallery One,' a suite of new interactives that transform the Art Museum experience. Visitors can explore digital versions of the artworks, gathering ideas, and seeing the original context of the artworks themselves. Rather then simply bask in the reflection of others' artworks, visitors to Gallery One create their own works of art, and understand creativity by being creative themselves. Through interactive games, visitors can put their own bodies into the experience, matching poses with figurative sculptures, or browse the museum's collection by making different facial gestures. All of these interfaces are experiences that invite visitors to understand art and art–making through intuition, play and creativity. For those who do not like technology, the traditional design of the galleries means that the interactives are opt–in and do not circumvent the art gallery experience. An expansive interactive wall allows multiple visitors to see all 3,000 artworks on display at the same time, inviting them to curate their own experiences by exploring connections between artworks. Custom tours can be connected to a new iPad application that allows visitors to both navigate the museum through a Director's tour and take tours made by other visitors. Gallery One at the Cleveland Museum of Art will change how visitors understand the artworks and themselves."
