Abstract:

Seeker Number 1 is an interactive story which combines performance, filmed by multiple cameras and streamed live, with an interactive installation at an exhibition space. Homer’s Odyssey, the story’s base narrative structure, is situated within multiple storylines and environments. Audience members are able to access and interact with the performance during the exhibition by exploring a physical setup with objects that relate to the story and characters. By experimenting with interactivity, open narrative structures, and the aura of live performers in the virtual space, Seeker Number 1 attempts to bring liveness and emotional affect to the Interactive Digital Narrative.
This thesis uses research design methodology to explore how various combinations of dramatic structural elements, live performance, audience agency and computer procedural capabilities can collaboratively create meaning. Seeker Number 1 is a reflection on the emergent relationship between liveness and networked technology represented by the machine.
