Abstract

Building on Benjamin's observation that every art form eventually aspires to effects that can only be fully obtained in a new medium and on the concrete examples of Fielding and Eisenstein, who both used their cinema respectively, Marsha Kinder describes her collaboration with independent filmmakers Nina Menkes and Pat O'Neill and novelist John Rechy on three electronic fictions designed to stretch the creative boundaries of CD-ROMs. Produced bythe Labyrinth Research Initiative on Interactive Narrative (at the University of Southern California's Annenberg Center for Communication), these fictions premiered at the "Interactive Fictions" exhibit in June 1999, along with fourteen other pieces by a wide range of artists (including Cindy Bernard, George Legrady, Vibeke Sorensen, Bill Viola, and Norman Yonemoto), all positioning the viewer as a performer of the narrative. Despite very different styles of interactivity, these installations all embraced the Labyrinth's broad definition of narrative: as a discursive mode of patterning and interpreting the meaning of perceptions, a mode that always carries specific historical, cultural, and generic inflections and that always performs a complex weave of cognitive, ideological, and aesthetic functions.
