About the Book
What storytelling methods in the collective memory of film, literature and fine arts can be uncovered to enrich the practice of design in the digital medium? A more poetic functionalism is discovered through an interdisciplinary inquiry into each unique storytelling vocabulary. Through action research methodology and exploratory design projects, the psychology of motivation, optimal experience and perception is probed. This thesis for NSCAD University's MDes program examines the storytelling qualities of light, digital devices, and interfaces, with the ultimate goal of finding ways to create interactive story spaces that visitors discover and illuminate with the light of their own interest.
