Nonlinear Autobiography

Hi all,

Here is my abstract for the final project. (I hope it is what you had in mind Jen.)

Non-linear story telling has emerged as a field in order to tell a story in a more interactive and more innovative manner. I chose to take this idea further by using a non-linear approach to autobiography. The idea of retelling a story and the inevitable changes that occur will be incorporated into this work. The reader/viewer will be presented with one picture and a piece of text. This picture and text will be personal and reflective of the relationship I hold with the picture. The relationship between me and the picture will be small insight into my own personal story however it will also allow the reader/viewer to re-experience her own stories. The text will include a number of hypertextual links that will enable her to move through the work in a unique manner. It is my aim to allow her to miss some of the pages as well as happen upon a few unique pages to ensure a unique experience. The extension of non-linear story telling will create both personal and shared experiences for the reader/viewers and will demonstrate the power of this medium.
