I´m an artist, and a computer scientist specialized in narrative construction from a range of different media. Since my relation to science from when I studied Computer science is complicated, to say the least, due to an academic resistance to review the narrative beyond structures and templates, I share the posts from my site Narrative construction at Gamasutra with the hope to see the understanding of the narrative as a perceptual and cognitive process evolve.

What it means to have a cognitive approach to the narrative and how to approach a quality assurance from a narrative perspective beyond templates and strong structures in creation of engagement in digital and interactive contexts.
