What is the stuff that digital stories are made of? Video – sometimes comics or interactive fiction – but what about maps and timelines? In this workshop we’ll look at how to weave visualizations of space and time into the fabric of digital storytelling, reaching beyond simple illustration or documentation. We’ll develop the grammar for these stories in hands-on fashion, so all participants should bring their favorite laptop, tablet, or smartphone to craft their tales. Along the way, we’ll pick up some tips from storytellers such as Simonides, Gislebertus, and Robert Smithson, whose narrative insights span roughly 2500 years.
