Joscha Jäger. Copyright: Thomas Koehler/ photothek.netI’m a Creative Technologist and Researcher, working in the field of web-based film and video search engines, with a strong focus on film as information architecture and web-native media format. Since the beginning of 2010, I developed a broad interest in the domain of digital archives, interactive time-based media and search user interfaces that I am trying to pursue in different projects and activities. I’ve been co-organizing the “Workshop on Interactive Content Consumption” (WSICC) at the ACM International Conference on Interactive Experiences for Television and Online Video for three years, have luckily served as a mentor at the “Popathon” HackJams for web-native storytelling and am continuously developing the “FrameTrail” Open Hypervideo Environment.

My thoughts on an open, hyperlinked ecosystem for audiovisual contents (and the rationale for my admiration of the original hypertext ideas) can be found here: “Open Hypervideo as Archive Interface”.
