Abstract

This paper describes a new approach to documenting media art which seeks to place in dialogue the artist’s intentions and the audience’s experience. It explicitly highlights the productive tension between the ideal, conceptual existence of the work, and its actual manifestation through different iterations and exhibitions in the real world. The paper describes how the approach was developed collaboratively during the production of a documentary collection for the artwork Giver of Names, by David Rokeby. It outlines the key features of the approach including artist’s interview, audience interviews and data structure.
