Moments of Innovation is an ongoing initiative by IDFA DocLab and MIT’s Open Documentary Lab to celebrate the field of interactive documentary and connect the dots between the endeavors of artists in the digital age and the pioneers and innovations that came before them. Originally published in 2012, the project took interest in the ‘pas de deux’ between representation and technology, and the resulting capacity to see the world with new eyes.

In 2017, during the Update or Die conference about preserving interactive artworks, Moments of Innovation was relaunched to include over 100 projects that were recently selected for the IDFA DocLab Interactive Documentary Canon.
