The medium is the message

The multimedia projects listed under this category have been developed at the Digital Media and Composition (DMAC) Institute 2015 at Ohio State University. Concept in 60 is a multimedia project that had to unfold in exactly 60 seconds. I choose to use scraps of multimedia from my ethnographic work on immigration. I used segments from interviews with Eastern European immigrants (both audio and textual files); I used footage from an archival movie on immigration, and current images of immigrants. To a certain extent, in 60 second I managed to create a historical perspective while also covering a wide geographical area from Eastern Europe to current waves of immigrants mostly arriving from the Southern border of the US.

The second project focused on teaching multimedia courses or incorporating multimedia assignments in writing courses. The corresponding tab offers an overview of our collaborative project.
