"As both fictional and non-fictional accounts, expressed through words, images, sounds and gestures, stories allow us to reflect on the way we live, and provide a means of structuring and expressing our experiences and understanding of the world around us. "

Introduction

Documentaries are a type of storytelling. However, when it reaches to audience it turns into a ‘fixed and linear form’ in contrast to dynamic and evolving nature of making it.

Audience participation is important for co-construction of documentaries to tell their own story.

" In cases where the documentary is being created for an audience that is closely involved in the realworld events being portrayed, we believe that digital tools can be used to provide an even greater level of engagement in the storytelling process. "

Introduction

" Our goal for the storytelling workshop was to create a collective record of the symposium that would allow participants to reflect on their experience. Using a new set of digital tools – a tangible storytelling system, an online video weblog, and a content annotation tool – we provided symposium participants with the means of engaging in a collaborative storytelling process both during and after the event. "

Digital tools used that enables temporally and spatially structured approaches.

" Aristotle defined the art of storytelling as being that which gives us a shareable world. "

" De Certeau claims that "space is a practiced place", thereby using narrative to distinguish between the concepts of place and space. While a map divides place, a story traverses space. In other words, people can fulfill the potential of a landscape by giving it personal meaning. "

Evaluation

"The video clips presented an opportunity for many of the craftspeople at the symposium to watch themselves actively engaged in their craft for the first time, and to reflect on their skills, techniques and work methods.

The movement between creation and engagement was a cyclical process, with each part informing the evolution and meaning of the other.

Combining metaphors of time and space to explore story constructions provides a flexible framework for documenting the multiple locations, activities and points of view of a large-scale event. "

Discussion

What are the other dimensions that we can explore apart from time, space and character viewpoints in domestic environment for storytelling?

What are the other means for creating a narrative with collaborative audience other than digital media?
