Guiding Question:

How to manifest a character that is at once boundless and bounded by herself?

Story:

Threadbare is an transmedia story about a woman coming to terms with her identity and self. The story will be presented through the following forms:

an interactive installation

a web comic

a wireless area network

The Woman is of a web, but not The Web. She exists in a space that is at once boundless and bounded by herself. Viewers navigate this space by either tripping over invisible threads (the installation), clicking through pages (the comic), and/or entering a networked space (WLAN).

Goal:

My goal was to investigate how the Viewer-User-Player's interaction with the installtion could mimic the narrative itself. I was determined to know if the movement could inform the VUP's understanding.

Research:

As the Viewer moves through the installation, he discovers the narrative unfolding visibly and invisibly, within and without. The Viewer's interaction mimics the The Woman's dialogue with herself; she fears intimacy yet as the viewer moves closer more of her story and self is revealed.

Threadbare is still in development and will be an ongoing networking project.
