In the Shadow of Things by Léonie Hampton

Showcasing the immersive and the interactive, this beautiful app demonstrates the potential for digital publications to portray a deeply personal multimedia archive. Award-winning photographer Léonie Hampton's moving account of her family’s struggle with obsessive compulsive disorder exhibits photography, moving image, and family conversations, some painful, some humorous, all stunning.

In this session the archive is presented by interface designer and Pervasive Media Studio resident Victoria Forrest (VIKA Books), who will guide you through the story itself as well as the potential of the underlying template to be applied to a wide variety of other archives - from surround sound cinemas to multi-room interactive exhibitions.
