24-hours.in (2011)

24-hours.in is an interactive project that explores new opportunities for participation, collaboration and the potential democratisation of documentary production. The participatory project utilises user-generated documentary videos captured on mobile phones and available devices, around the theme of 24 hours in a city or location.

Full Description

24-hours.in Tampere was produced during a 3-day workshop as part of the Tampere Art Factory International week in April 2011, working with students from TAMK School of Art & Media in Tampere, Finland. The participants were encouraged to embrace Vertov’s avant-garde approach to filmmaking to capture ‘life caught unawares’.

Artist Statement

With reference to (but not recreating) Dziga Vertov’s 1929 documentary film ‘Man with a Movie Camera’, the videos will document the cities, the people that live there and their daily lives. Moving beyond the participation model, the project will build up a database of location specific documentary material and aim to create a new system for collaborative documentary production and a user-curated experience.
