Narrative is a place to explore and reflect on narrative modes in multiple media: a narrative lab, a storytelling lab.

Building on experience in different scapes – film, media art, exhibition design, radio, publishing, festivals, pecha kucha and live storytelling, graphic novels and comic books … -, the website looks at storytelling in a transversal way.


In 1996, as Japan Foundation fellow, I was proposing the Benshi, as metaphor of “interactive narrative”. In 2007, after number of high-tech installations in mixed and augmented reality, I launched PechaKucha Brussels, which can also be labelled as a low-tech interactive narrative, à la Benshi, of the early 1900′s in Tokyo and around.

A première of TempoBenshi took place on Dec. 1st, 2014 in La Bellone.

In 2014, I am now working on my PhD at Brussels University – Scaling Narrative, Tasting Interactive. Exploring Notions of Interactive Narrative in Complex Systems.
