#narrativeecologyFebruary 8, 2009
Recently we launched with Anatole Fuksas a course Ecology of narratives. Actually, this course is an experiment for exploring the properties of narrative hybrid ecologies.
First day we played a bit around the conceptual ideas and then suggested a simple environment for swarm-like story-writing.
From then on the experiment is running until middle of March. The central place is Tallinn but we soon realized that the narrative itself directs the story. The course people is the core, but actually the ecology is open for any participants.
The story is pulled together using #narrativeecology tag
We also have an aggregated blog that has been quite effective for detecting some activity traces: http://ecologyofnarratives.wordpress.com/
The hardest part as i predicted is detecting the stories. Since the idea is not to force us work similarly, some more favoured standards can be described as a result.
So far it is quite fun. I have started to write a story of writing hybrid narratives. Notes..maybe..i hope this is really helpful when we analyze what happened. Ideas are so easy to be forgotten.
