The Presentation API is mostly used for documenting images: either providing structured information about a single work, or using annotations to represent information that is included in the image, such as transcriptions. But what if these mechanisms were subverted to create a narrative journey? Either between different images (a manifest with multiple canvases), or between regions of an individual image (a manifest with multiple annotations). In this presentation we will take two such narratives, and use demos and functioning prototypes to show how they can be repurposed to create a range of compelling mechanisms for digital storytelling: from a simple blog-like interface, to interactive images, and even going back to using the most traditional way to tell a good story: the spoken word.
