Sandra Gaudenzi: “Digital Me Demo & Feedback Session”

Friday, March 20, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Imagine if the digital persona you have been creating all these years while socialising online wanted to speak to you. What could you discover about each other? Digital Me, an interactive documentary, is a private experience that uses personalization to make you reflect on your multiple and hybrid (digital/physical) personalities while guaranteeing you the ownership of the data that is retrieved about yourself.

Digital Me is a project by Sandra Gaudenzi and Helios Design Labs that is currently in concept development with BBC Learning.

Sandra Gaudenzi has started her career as a television producer. She then moved into interactive television, and has been teaching interactive media theory at the London College of Communication (University of the Arts London) from 1999 till 2013. She is now Visiting Research Fellow at the University of the West of England. Her research interests include interactive documentary, participatory practices, UX in i-docs, transmedia storytelling, locative experiences and games for change. Sandra is one of the conveners of i-Docs, a conference totally dedicated to interactive documentaries, that she initiated in 2011 and she is a creative director of its website, http://i-docs.org/ and Facebook group. She currently blogs at www.interactivefactual.net and is the author of www.interactivedocumentary.net, a blog that she started in 2009 in order to document her own experience of doing a PhD at Goldsmiths (University of London).
