An interactive documentary designed as a space for examination of nationalist partition in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Combining video, stills, text and audio, the project uses the country’s railway system as a metaphor for social disintegration and the problems of reconciliation. Taking into account the country’s complex negotiation of real space, “Dayton Express” turns to virtual space as an alternate domain for public discourse. Employing new media’s interactive capabilities as a tool for intervention, it attempts to mediate in spaces where communication gaps lead to a myriad of misconceptions about both past and present.
