Karla Brunet & Juan Freire. Digital narratives and eco-media: An artistic experimentation in coastal communities.
Subtle Technologies, 4 June 2010
We will present the process of creating digital narratives as an artistic experimentation in a coastal community. In a socio-ecological context, the exploration of place is a fundamental aspect of the narrative and experimental geography arise as the conceptual and practical framework. This artistic project was developed in Garapuá, a coastal location in Brazil (Bahia), in which local teenagers develop collaborative narratives of their territories using a combination of technologies and media such as: GPS, videos, photos, audio, texts, mapping and blogging. These narratives were constructed during workshops facilitated by a team of artists, scientists and educators.
