360° FILM: Expanding the frame as a collaborative approach
In this paper, I will pursue the idea that using 360° films can be staged as a first step to both narrative and sensorial collaborative methods. During my current research, participants are invited to wear binaural microphones and 360° camera in order to travel an everyday walking path in autonomy. After meeting up with me, they will be engaged into a new experience of their path through a « virtual reality » helmet. Through it they will comment this stroll and discuss their impressions concerning both the digital tools and the urban space that they crossed, more specifically the ambiance of this space time. The restitution form of this work will be a 360° film installation, the public will be invited to wear a helmet broadcasting the film of the walk and the participants’ selected comments about their own impressions. Placing the participants in the center of the image and sound production is a way to co-produce this research. Hence, engaging them into the reflexive work of visualizing and commenting on their own experience is a way to co-construct the research object. This methodology is involved into a research project in Lyon (France) on the links between urban ambiance and health: how the urban weave can affect physical activity for young people who got cancer. This experience, in first-person view, questions the kinds of impressions, sensations, that 360° films can translate through an immersive approach of film.
