Mulimodality? More like Multicreative-aesthetics!!

I’m really glad we are writing blogs again because it’s my favorite part of this class! Its definitely not an essay which is great. So the meaning behind my title for this blog is actually what I’ll be talking about because I feel that when I do multimodal projects, the multicreative-aesthetics is more where I lie in the spectrum.

So, in the multimodal world, I decided to make up my own subcategory of multimodality per say as to how I view it. In the world of blogs and media, I feel like I have definitely made my fair share. I’ll start with these blogs actually and how I think they fit into multimodality. When I start a blog I make sure to have a good title and image to grasp readers attention. There aren’t many other ways on this specific site to do that. Another thing I do is incorporating hyperlinks on my posts which keeps readers engaged. I’m not too sure the text itself on many things count for anything multimodal, but I try to make it that way.

When I used the word aesthetic here, I’m using it as an adjective because knowing myself, I like to make sure things look nice when I do them. I like to think a lot of my multimodal projects are seemingly aesthetic to my liking… especially on blogs! Another project I have done before was a video project for my senior year in High School. If I remember correctly, we had to recreate a scene from Shakespeare’s Macbeth. I was acting director and I recall making absolute sure that I made everything look perfect and right up to par with what needed to happen! For the video content, it was really dark and gloomy, and I also filtered the footage to make it black and  white. I was very proud of the outcome and felt that my group had the most visually pleasing outcome.

I hope this all made sense since I feel like I didn’t… Also, I’m not entirely sure if I answered the main point of this weeks blog? But then again, I’m never happy with these.

    The first thing I noticed was you used aesthetic. I think there is a movement in fashion, entertainment, media that is all centered around “aesthetic” as a word and style. It is like a fad almost in it’s overage but it is such an awesome word and idea that it is no wonder it is being used so much lately. I think you are killing the game at mulimodality in these blogs so keep it up!
