Digital scholarship is implicitly transdiscipline, creating new types of knowledge about the world that is statistically objective. Documentary practice is also cross-discipline. It is based on theories of objectivity (even through subjective means) and rooted in ethnography and storytelling. The former is more likely to represent a statistical aggregate; the latter is likely to delve into the archive of the individual (or what Tarde would term the "Monad"). Might they combine into a new practice in documentary arts? This paper considers new art programs emerging from traditional institutes of science and new digital humanities programs in liberal arts.
