dc.description.abstractThis work is a creative production PhD project that consists of a designed creative text and an exegesis. The creative text, a novel, is made up of of seven artefacts: a novella, a photograph, a series of newspaper clippings, a photocopied news clipping, a VHS tape, an audiocassette, and a personal letter. Produced in old media (media that pre-dates the Internet and is not disseminated digitally) each artefact tells an individual story. When considered together, they form the larger, polysemous narrative. ‘Polysemous narrative’ refers to the ability of a sign to express multiple meanings in story form. In this context, it refers to specific ways in which the designer has purposefully constructed divergent articulations of the text as well as to the ways in which the artefacts, as material objects, contribute to divergent interpretations of meaning.en_NZ
