Abstract

Graphic designers and visual artists express their narrative intentions using visual tools which essentially include the styling of shapes. In classic art forms design decisions are limited to the initial creation process. Although technical progress makes it possible to adjust content-wise dramaturgy in real-time, the graphical design process often still has static characteristics. In our current work we therefore study how dramaturgical non-linearity can be combined with a flexible visual shape language to conform content-wise narration to visual expressiveness in real-time.
