Interactive Documentary Brooklyn (idBrooklyn) is a new platform for rich media navigation: it is a multiuser environment inlcuding a 3D frontend, different types of interfaces and will run as an interactive installation and as an online site.
For my thesis project I created an interface for the navigation along an ontological graph. I wrote a detailed description of the project, and parts of my research can also be found on BrookLynX Research.
The project was presented at the vBrooklyn video festival in 12/2007 and in 05/2008 at the Music and the Moving Image Symposium at the Frederick Loewe Theatre/NYU
The project is jointly developed by the Integrated Digital Media Institute of Polytechnic University, the NYC College of Technology of CUNY, and the Brooklyn Historical Society. People involved: Robin Bargar, Carl Skelton, Insook Choi, Arthur Peters, Brian MacMillan, Marius Schebella, Jeremy Schaller, Robert Ramirez, Mark Skwarek, Deborah Schwartz.
