My thesis is about creating a sense of place through photography and sound.

My thesis is not just about how photography and sound are used to create a sense of place. In a larger context, it also focuses on how visual language and sound combine in a new media context to make this sense of place experiential and memorable. In the process, it looks at how photographers, filmmakers, composers and new media designers can and do encode this sense of place into their work.

In the process this thesis examines form, visual language and the expansion of communication vocabularies into sound and motion to explore these concepts.
