[From written notes] My Macbook was overheating therefore I've switched to manual. I wanted to write down a few notes before going to sleep. A couple of semi-ideas (and, I think, semi-interesting ones) have come into my head over the weekend. Maybe it's the freedom from worrying about trying to submit during August (as per agreement with Sian)?!
Video! I hadn't really planned to use this medium. Too time consuming to prepare. But perhaps it can feature, albeit in a small supporting role. Perhaps I would include - where relevant, obviously - a couple of short video-photo montages. This might work for the Architecture crit? Or maybe to show the different types of existing multimodal study within the academy (as proposed in the Lit Review)?
Hang on! Here's an idea...
In the Lit Review, where I take the reader on a walk through the university's corridor, why don't I accompany this with a video that goes into more detail. The 'viewer' could be led/make their way down a corridor of rooms (or a series of corridors in the university), dropping into different rooms where multimodal activity is taking place. Basically, a photographic/filmic representation of what's in the text, but so much richer.
Here are some quick thoughts on how this might work:
