10 Minute Man. Data Memento.
Prof. Andrea Nikol
year of making
Nolan`s Thriller Memento deals with a man who suffers from a short-term memory loss,an allegedly murder & it`s solution respectively. Furthermore the component of vengence is addressed. The particular appeal isn`t about the plot itself but rather about the intelligent narrative structure.This unusual rhetorical device embodies the fundamental element of the interactive datavizualisation.The user takes on the director’s role & creates bizarre narrations.A person–acts–at a place–at a certain time.These parameters build the center of which obscure data formations in a 3D-diagram originate. The script serves as a starting point–9.935 words,113 min.To localize the language in space & time, word frequency,point in time as well as the position of a person in the moment of speaking are used as variables of visualization. As a result,the user is invited to explore his stories from inside the room. Altogether,it is an artistic product where narrative,archival & aesthetic elements merge together.
