In many disciplines video is becoming a major vehicle for dissemination,
and documentary videos are often presented as evidence for research in conferences. However, I would like to suggest that video has its limitations and researchers need to be weary of the seemingly transparent quality of the medium and try to seek alternative media to contextualize their research process.
The project is a practice-based research between HCI and Sociology. I am currently developing a series of visual prompts that are intended as workshop tools to facilitate discussion with participants about alternative media for research dissemination. The first set of visual prompts were copies of a lenticular image printed on different materials such as acetate, acrylic and ‘Gelflex’. Through different techniques, the image is transferred onto a range of materials, which in turn alters how the image appears.
