Proof in Process is a new three-year research/creation project co-directed by Monika Kin Gagnon and Matt Soar. It builds on our previous work with CINER-G, the Concordia Interactive Narrative Experimentation and Research Group (2007-2011), and expands on our commitment to exploring interactive, database-driven storytelling and its emerging modalities across the digital humanities and media arts. Proof in Process is a project of ARC (Adventures in Research/Creation), and is funded by the SSHRC.
Like CINER-G, Proof in Process is premised on the necessity of making media and engaging in practice-based research, not as a singular, final outcome, but as a set of iterative processes of discovery, creation, and exploration. Central to our ongoing program of research-creation is The Korsakow System, a digital authoring and publishing tool for creating nonlinear, database-driven narratives. Korsakow was invented by Florian Thalhofer, a Berlin-based media artist who continues to work closely with us to further develop this remarkable software application.
