Project Details


Detdom is a collaborative research and arts project with Peter Dukes, a senior academic from the School of Media, Arts and Design at the University of Westminster,UK.

Detdom records the experiences of orphans and carers in the Russian Federation in a format of an interactive documentary.The project has two principal aims:

Firstly, to inform viewers about the experiences and everyday lives of orphans and their carers.
Secondly, to explore the presentation of such documentary material not as edited films, but in the form of databases of raw footage etc, accessed through an interface. Each part of the project develops an interface specific to that content.
