Abstract This research project finds ways to make multilinear nonfiction and then considers ways to think about what this multilinear nonfiction practice does. This approach moves iteratively from the fragmented and relational qualities of the online network, the Korsakow authoring software, the essay film, and the list as ways of making interactive nonfiction, to ecocriticism as a way to understand what this practice does. I See You, Grey Skies/Blue Skies, Sunny, Rainy, Foggy, and Sometimes I See Palm Trees, as the creative components of this research, compose the world in fragments and soft relations which respond to multilinearity as a specific quality of the online network.

After developing a practice of listing to notice the unnoticed I find the ways ecocriticism and posthumanism think about the world as appropriate lenses to understand the projects I have made. I see particular affinities between how these fields think about the world as indeterminate and my own fragmented and relational practice. The understanding which culminates through applying these evocative lenses is a non-narrative audiovisual nonfiction practice which composes the world in fragments and soft multiple relations. I propose this practice thinks about and senses the world ecocritically.
