Interactive Video Project 2004:

‘Somewhere between here and there, narrativas contadas narrativas vividas,’ an interactive Video Installation, designed to be shown as a live, presentation in a gallery environment as well as for Internet viewing and interaction.
This project is based upon the real life stories of people who moved from their native countries and settle in a foreign land and examines the culturally drifting journeys, the paradox of living in a country that is both their own and not their own, feelings of rootlessness, as well as the hierarchy and conflict between the mother-tongue and the acquired language. The artwork is an exploration within the

aesthetic and theoretical forms assigned to the documentary genre, interactivity and non-linear narratives. Migrants become the historians of their own lives by telling their stories in variant ways and, thereby, continually revising their identities. Different people were videoed and interviewed and their stories were then fragmented and embedded within the interactive presentation. By featuring people from diverse contexts, investigating spaces, experiences and struggles surrounding migration and exploring their psychological and physical journeys, it portrays the perception of the migrant experience by migrants themselves as a complex and multidimensional phenomenon.

2000- Award for the Research Exchange Scheme from the Arts and Humanities Research Board in collaboration with Science Communication Group, Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, London.


This project began when I was approached by the Science Communication Group at Imperial College in London to take part in a research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board, somewhat dryly titled, “Multimedia Representations of Science”. The academic study of how science has been, is, and might in the future be represented – a field called simply, “Science Communication” – is a relatively new, interdisciplinary research area. It embraces history of science, sociology, philosophy, linguistics and a host of other established disciplines. Imperial College started the first post-graduate course in the subject about ten years ago and were interested to work with me, as a digital media artist, to see how their work might now be extended to take advantage of the opportunities afforded by the Internet.
