The Rashomon Project

Rashomon is an open-source online toolkit designed for rapidly synchronizing and displaying videos and photos from contested events to help users gain a more nuanced understanding of them through multi-perspective timelines and interactive viewing features.

On this project, I helped in designing features for the site, I helped curate timelines, and connected with activist organizations including Amnesty International and WeCopwatch (Oakland). I also designed and conducted user testing experiments on the toolset with 60 people, where I compared viewing experiences of multi-perspective video timelines on Rashomon against viewing single-perspective videos on youtube. For my work on this project, I was interviewed for an article in New Scientist.
