    Captain's Log: SIGGRAPH as Experience



    How can we go beyond ordinary reporting? How can we use the interviewing process as a vehicle to further social interactions and understanding among people with divergent cultural experiences?

    Participants begin by answering seven questions to determine their cultural experience: age group, gender, region or country, language(s) their great grandparents spoke as their first language, the continent their ancestors came from, political identification, area of computer graphics. Then 30-second video interviews are conducted with SIGGRAPH 2006 attendees who provide different answers to at least four of the questions on cultural experience. The focus of the interviews is their experience at the conference. Workshop participants will then edit and compile the interviews as podcasts.
