LEts see where this goes


epicpedia is a web script that renders Wikipedia articles and their revision/editing history as a theater script, taking inspiration from Bertolt Brecht's estrangement effect that he used in his idea of Epic Theatre.

A theatre script is an explanatory document that I used as a model to explain the mechanism of Wikipedia, outside of Wikipedia. It can show for every Wikipedia article how it is constructed, when it is constructed and who its contributors are. Users are able to show and hide the original Wikipedia window that lays on top of the theatre script. This gives the opportunity to view and edit a Wikipedia article and to view a live rendered theatre script based on recent made edits to the article. Users can adopt an attitude of inquiry and criticism in their approach to Wikipedia by using epicpedia.
