2018-2019: Interactive Documentary

Domestic and working life in 1960s Thrace.

This project sought to better understand how interactive digital platforms might draw on the methodology of museum theater to facilitate access to archival content in a way that foregrounds the human, intangible dimension of the material and its social relevance. This project centers on a music library collection, relating to working peoples’ lives and customs in 20th century Thrace.
