Designing an Interactive Non-Linear Documentary Contributed by Public Participation: Suburbs of Istanbul
Suburbs of Istanbul is a web-based interactive documentary project that examines the identity of suburban neighborhoods in Istanbul through the participation of its residents via online submission of their visual and written stories. Public participation also led the design process and helped prototype the interfaces of this non-linear documentary. This project aims to contribute to the field of interactive documentary and non-linear storytelling by integrating participatory design techniques in the prototyping process of documentary interfaces. Involving the public both as content providers and as active decision-makers in the design process lead to a more genuine outcome with a human-centered approach. This project also intends to create an interactive experience to provide greater insight into the rapidly changing lifestyles of Turkish people, to provide a global context to the stories presented, and to generate widespread awareness of issues surrounding suburban lifestyles across the world.
