A Theory and Practice of Transmedia Arts Activism, Critical Design and Ethics
About the book
‘This book is a rousing call to a collaborative documentary and transmedia practice that is at once theoretically astute and ethically committed. As she sets out with her partners to preserve linguistic diversity from Taiwan to Hawai‘i, Anita Chang charts a course for community-engaged documentary and transmedia projects that decolonize through the dialogical possibilities of digital media. Third Digital Documentary represents the very best of a growing trend toward the convergence of scholarly, activist, and creative pursuits.’
— Alexander L. Fattal, author of Shooting Cameras for Peace / Disparando Cámaras para la Paz
‘Chang shifts debate from how we can preserve languages to how we can create new ones – new, digital, interactive ones that will give fresh life to languages imperiled by global forces of homogenization. Her vision, based on her own work, of an online art platform that moves us from passively absorbing information to actively creating embodied knowledge is a crucial demonstration of how activism can adapt new forms of media to progressive goals.’
— Bill Nichols, author of Introduction to Documentary and Representing Reality
‘Chang’s book should be very useful to educators, artists and activists as a guide to building counterpublics that discursively vitalize and revitalize spaces of freedom.’
— Lana Lin, director of The Cancer Journals Revisted and author of Freud’s Jaw and Other Lost Objects: Fractured Subjectivity in the Face of Cancer
