Let’s Take This Outside – Locative Documentary Forms

Locative Media is in essence the use of media to augment place. Experience of location is however always augmented by memory, imagination and response to environment while walking and motion through space creates a type of fundamental narrative. This presentation uses discussion of three locative projects, a monologue fiction for freeway drivers, a locative essay about national aesthetics and a locative history documentary for pedestrians to discuss the possibilities and restriction of locative documentary.

All three of these projects attempt to intensify, subvert and deepen the resonance of the places they are designed to be experienced in.
