Tactical Transmedia Fictions / Paolo Cirio (2012)

Still of Paolo Cirio's Google Will Eat Itself project

This workshop explored ‘cross media’ practices for producing fiction, such as ‘Transmedia Storytelling’, ‘Alternate Reality Games’ and ‘Dispersed Fiction,’ looking at how these products are changing cinema, theatre, marketing and games through Internet platforms and networked devices.

The workshop focused on how Transmedia storytelling can also be used for educational and political goals, engaging people in social change and raising awareness about real world problems, or even for psychotherapy.

Artist Paolo Cirio, who led the workshop, has been researching the cross media field for several years as a natural continuation of his studies in theatre, film, net-art and radical media intervention.
