How interactive technology is transforming storytelling | Culture professionals network | Guardian Professional
Let me begin by saying: reports of the death of the book are wildly exaggerated. Likewise traditional storytelling. Human beings have been telling stories around campfires since the first cavewoman struck a flint against another flint and noticed that an interesting spark flew off. Stories aren’t going anywhere and nor is the visceral, inexplicable, bone-deep shivery delight of a good tale well told.
What happens, however, is that new technologies give creative people new ideas. Art and science (or technology) are often imagined to be totally separate – but this is not, and never has been, true. Art is affected by the technology of art, because artists love to experiment, and every new development is a new tool.
