This work represents the documentation that emerged from a panel at the Visible Evidence XXIV documentary conference, held in Buenos Aires in 2017. The panel consisted of a series of propositions and interrogations of new epistemologies and ontologies for understanding interactive documentary through a materialist lens. These have been collected here, and the panel members invited to further develop their thinking in light of the panel. The work, as curated here, is deliberately between the tone of the presentation and a finished article. They are more formal than the former, and shorter and less refined than the latter. In this manner they are part of an ongoing experiment in alternative academic practices and forms that seek to open, critique, and revision scholarship as a black box.
