|Description of Work|
Re-enchantment is an online interactive documentary project exploring why fairy stories continue to enchant, entertain, fascinate and horrify contemporary adult audiences. The rich media environment of Re-enchantment offers an extremely immersive experience to explore fairy tales. By finding symbols on the forest paths the user is transported into seven story spaces: Bluebeard, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Red Riding Hood. Each story in its unique way invites you to navigate the historical, social, cultural and psychological layers embedded in the traditional tales, to discover their meaning for adults today and to view the way they are being re-imagined by contemporary artists. Re-enchantment is a poetic and provocative act of creative interpretation, bringing together digital video, documentary footage, photography, animation, still images and sound. The website is hosted by ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) on-line.
