ICOM presents Multimodal Engagements [Installation]

Please note, this page is for the installation sessions only

Multimodality is a rich field of research that draws attention to how meaning is made through the combined use of semiotic resources such as gesture, speech, face expression, body movement and proxemics, (still and moving) image, objects, sound and music, writing, colour, layout, and the built environment.

UCL has strong traditions and thriving communities in multimodal theory, research, and practice – and is hosting this year’s International Conference of Multimodality (#ICOM_11) in London. The conference takes up the theme and task of ‘designing futures’ with innovative contributions from around the world.

The future belongs to us all. On the 29th of September at the Bloomsbury Studio you are invited to engage in multimodal works with space to experience, think, and talk about the future.
