IM Interactive Media

E-Journal of the National Academy of Screen and Sound

ISSN 1833-0533

IM: Interactive Media is a refereed interdisciplinary electronic journal administered by the National Academy of Screen and Sound (Australia) and conceived as an interactive forum for researchers in screen and screen production.

As an interdisciplinary screen journal IM sets no theoretical boundaries other than the boundaries found conveniently in the acronym of IM itself: IM. I AM. EYE AM. INTERACTIVE MEDIA.

IM ’s founding theme is that, as viewing subjects, we always act as an interactive medium, as much as we are a perceiving , inscribing, recording, transforming, transmuting and a transmitting medium. The fact that the image and the eye are in place and interacting from the earliest point of human development and before words, provides the starting point for this journal.

IM is particularly interested in contributions that explore intentional engagements with objects in real or imagined space, and that theorise ocular space in active, graphic and dynamic terms, be it as a landscape, screen scape, cyber space, subject space, object space, neural space, urban space, virtual space, time-space, animated space, jump–cut space, to name just a few.

Heroic Reflections:

Heroism in Popular,
Visual and Digital Cultures,
and Creative Production

Heroism remains a persistent phenomenon in both lived experience and the media in contemporary Western and non-Western societies. This special edition of IM: Interactive Media explores the diverse, complex and, at times, problematic representations of heroism in popular, visual and digital cultures, and creative production.

Through select contributions from the inaugural cross-disciplinary conference The Rise and Future of Heroism Science held at Murdoch University, 11-12 July 2016, it aims to showcase the communicative power of various creative mediums in conveying the heroic in its many forms.
