Andrew Burn is leading on mixed methods approaches to multimodal analysis, and on the development of multimodal theories of the moving image: the kineikonic mode. The term was first introduced in an article by Andrew Burn and David Parker (the research officer for BFI Education): Burn A & Parker D (2001), ‘Making your Mark: Digital Inscription, Animation, and a New Visual Semiotic’, Education, Communication & Information, Vol. 1, No. 2, pp 155-179. You can see an online version, including clips of the digital animations, here.
The theme will be developed over the course of the MODE project through training events, workshops, seminars, working papers and publications.
This theme is the topic of Victoria Hurr’s doctoral research: she holds one of three PhD scholarships funded by MODE. Her pilot project is an analysis of text, context and audience encounter with Tacita Dean’s FILM at Tate Modern.
