Dado a la duda (pun intended, but extremely hard to translate) is a very ambitious project: a "choose your own adventure" in song form. With eleven different endings, its lyrics take as many as thirty nine pages.
This interactive project uses Youtube as a vehicle, giving the audience the ability to choose between different options at the end of each clip. The diagram below outlines the complexity of the task.

Every time the viewer chooses a video, a new branch is accessed. This invites the audience to replay the project to try and find the many possible endings.
Dado a la Duda explores my interest in finding new ways of using technology; Youtube was not created for interactive experiences such as this, but the system allows for more than we might immediately expect - it's just about looking at it in a different way.
The audience are using a platform they know for one thing, and experience an unexpected joy when finding it used for another.
