Ritual semiotics, symbolism and storifying
- To narrate or describe in story
- The composition of a story from real or fictitious sources so as to create change in the listener’s, reader’s and user’s emotions, thought, and behaviours in the desired manner
This ongoing practice as research inquiry applies principles first encountered in Patrick Dunn’s Postmodern Magic — a guide to approaching magical practice from an information paradigm — and later also informed by texts by John Berger, Roland Barthes and Susan Sontag.
This part of my practice explores the magic of ritual semiotics, symbolism and storifying as it interacts with (auto)biographical memory and identity formation, trauma mediation and the curation of the digital and social public/private interface.
