Telling a story is at the fundamental core of our work as artists and photographers. Whether working in a documentary format, creating a world from scratch, shooting portraits, or working in various styles and media, the ultimate goal is to tell the story. As humans, we have a natural tendency to see story in terms of linear narrative, plot sequences, and progressions through time. How would you like to shake up your understanding of linear narrative, and tell interactive stories with your work?

Korsakow is an open-source application for creating web docs and other kinds of nonlinear, interactive narratives. It requires no programming expertise at all, and is available for Windows and Mac. Korsakow was invented in 2000 by filmmaker Florian Thalhofer and has since been used all over the world to make hundreds of outstanding database narratives. Rachel Toburen will begin by introducing Korsakow – the program, the history, and some examples of work done with the platform. Participants will get a chance to learn the ins-and-outs of the software using example files and ask questions to start their own projects.
