Interactive storytelling is the novel form of art. As Schneider (2011) proposes that documentary is in a state of flux due to the influence of ‘network conditions’ like all the forms of media. In Schneider’s argument, the objective is to reinvent documentary by responding to the ‘aesthetic potential of contemporary networked production’ (2011). Working from this argument, the objective in my research and my project is to explore possibilities outside of this acculturated approach towards linear documentary production. This demanded using the existed archive of the past 10 years and customised tools to produce an online interactive documentary.
