DANS Colloquium on Research and Data 4: Florian Thalhofer: Make the story lie less by creating flexible films

The DANS R&D colloquium is a meeting place for researchers, archivists and ICT specialists. Organized by DANS, its focus is on research data and what you can do with it. You are invited to participate in discussing the challenge to keep data fixed and to invent tools that can evolve fast in a landscape that is on the move. If you have done projects in preserving and reusing data we find a slot for you to share your experiences.

Theme September 8: Florian Thalhofer: Make the story lie less by creating flexible films

The words we use, shape the way we see. Just like in our everyday language, the language of film, its logic, its way of making sense of the things in front of the camera, shape the way we make sense of the things around us. The logic of films turns everything into a story.

A friend told me recently: “Everything is a story!”. But I disagree: We turn everything into a story.

Stories promote linear causal thinking, which is often not very helpful to get the bigger picture. As a result we focus to cure symptoms not causes. You can see this in pretty much every political discussion we currently face.

Florian Thalhofer has invented a software called “Korsakow” that allows authors to create flexible films. This software is used by students and filmmakers all over the world. Thalhofer has used Korsakow (almost exclusively) for his own work. He will talk about his findings.

Prior to his lecture at the DANS Colloquium Florian is available at DANS for a workshop and informal introduction into his tool hold at DANS. In this meeting we will discuss possible uses of the tool for libraries and archives. We will also raise the question how to archive Korsakow films, which are complex digital objects, and the related software. You are cordially invited to both the lecture and the workshop.
