This is a 3 minute off-screen recording of my interactive narrative project, Of Day, Of Night. This recording shows excerpts from the introduction and initial collection of objects in the work. A second video shows further excerpts as an off-screen recording.
Of Night Of Day, Of Night (2003) is a major interactive narrative exploring the ways in which narrative can be reshaped by interactive, digital affordances, and the fluid, recombinant nature of memory and dream experience. Funded by the Australian Film Commission, Of Day, Of Night has been recognised for its lush visual and aural landscapes, its rich user experience and its innovative fusion of literary, filmic and interactive aesthetics.
It has been exhibited in Australia, Europe, Japan and the US, and won high commendations in awards including the Australian Festival Awards for Literature and the AIMIA Best Arts & Cultural Project category. It will be included in the forthcoming Electronic Literature (ELO 2012) media arts show in the US in June 2012. dtc-wsuv.org/elit/elo2012/elo2012/Welcome.html
