Abstract [en]

The dilemma of designing interactive narrative media is how to empower the participants to tell the author’s story from their own point of view, yet in a structured manner. We propose a solution by means of associating story elements with metadata that constitute a story ontospace. It is defined by multiple narrative dimensions each of which follow one meaningful aspect of the story. The spectator can choose a perspective, which is essentially a prioritization among the narrative dimensions. This is formalized as a projection of the story space onto a uniquely apparent landscape, to which each dimension contributes to the chosen degree. The straightest trajectory through this landscape corresponds to a perspective-relative narrative path that always follows a coherent sequence. This model and its algorithmic implementation will be demonstrated with a database- adaptation of a typical cinema plot. Re-narrated examples generated by the model can be intuitively evaluated by the reader.
