It certainly could be a very valid and interesting pretext for exploring
documentary that is operational - code enables operationality in many modes
e.g. user-based interaction, non-linear, generative, algorithmic (all those
terms that you can think of where the media physically or actually varies),
so the scope to explore that is potentially quite vast.

There was quite a lot of buzz a number of years ago about trans-media
narratives and I attended a symposium about it within the context of
museumography, there are some very interesting examples there with what is
effectively documentary/historic made operational in very interesting ways
(pulling in ideas from new media, game theory and so forth).  It always
struck me as a little odd that documentary in film/video form never really
explored this to any extent - even after it had been used in mass/popular
media to support mainstream film/video.

Excellent point, Garrett.

I’m interested in this shift from analogue to digital when document no
longer become as significant as code. I’m wondering whether it help move
discussion on documentary away from representation towards operation.
