A conversation between Sandra Gaudenzi, Sandra Tabares Duque, Francesca Panetta and Halsey Burgund about their collaborative projects Corona Haikus and Corona Diaries.
During the time of COVID-19 lockdown we have seen an explosion of social media and collaborative projects, aimed at making social isolation more bearable. Some were a way to reach out and feel connected, others to document unprecedented times. The thin line between the subject and the observer has never been so blurred… who is co-creating with whom, and who is in control of what?
In this conversation, the authors of two collaborative corona projects will be joined by some participants to question together: What makes a project that asks for very personal sharing, work? What makes us choose to participate in one project rather than another? What pushes us to come back?
And ultimately: how is the potential gap between the author’s initial proposition and what is really received by the participants being negotiated and steered?
This talk will reflect on the capacity of i-docs to be quickly responsive to deep community needs.
Questions will be taken via chat during the webinar.
