VIDEODEFUNCT – PEDESTRIAN
year of launch
Videodefunct is a research project that focuses on producing a hybrid form of vlog. The â€˜pedestrianâ€™ prototype is the first of a number of work-in-progress prototypes being developed in the open source weblog application WordPress. A key objective of the project is to explore from a poetic perspective, the way video is presented within the structure of a blog. Pedestrian follows the theme of day-to-day travel, emulating the diary like nature of blogging as a collection of fragmentary short experiences. The first â€˜defunct playerâ€™ devised for this prototype uses the triptych format and utilises the social software feature of tagging. Individually posted clips are viewed as a cluster, with the user having the opportunity to curate varying selections.
