Starter Pack Stereotyping

As Marion Newman states, the perceptual frame is used to map all information inputs to  ” a version of reality built from personal experience, interaction with peers, and interpreted selections from the mass media” . When propagating memes, for example starter packs, it is this careful selection and salience that makes the experience “relatable”. Starter […]

STACKS ON STACKS

      “Media technologies are stacks where layers permit subsequent layers” As the technology develops and media platforms are constructed, more media platforms can be built on.

If I Was A Transmedia Story

  (Made using Giphy) Transmedia stories involve one story scattered over many channels. When pieced together and unified, more to a story is revealed as different parts are reviewed and reconstructed.
