Aural-Visual-Kinesthetic Imagery in Motion Media.
Allan, David W.
Motion media refers to film, television, and other forms of kinesthetic media including computerized multimedia technologies and virtual reality. Imagery reproduced by motion media carries a multisensory amalgamation of mental experiences. The blending of these experiences phenomenologically intersects with the reality and perception of words, images, sounds, numerical data, and artistic expression. Aural, verbal, visual, and kinesthetic (A-V-V-K) imagery produces, in a recall mode, images that become symbolic and sign-bearing. Virtual reality, interactive computerized multimedia, and other forms of media technology stretch our minds' ability to perceive and interpret A-V-V-K imagery. The many literacies of this imagery may bring another challenge. In the future, other sensory forms (smell, touch, and taste) may be incorporated into communications, which will bring us closer to an age of total media and total imagery. (Contains 14 references.)
