Conclusion

 

Much has been written about narrativity and, during my research, I have come to answer some of my questions, as well as raise new ones. When applied in art, narrativity becomes a flexible, but intriguing concept, which can label a wide range of qualities in an artwork. It is clearly more subjective than its counterpart from linguistics, as it can vary from one artwork to another and relies on the receiver's interpretation. Moreover, narrativity in abstract art is not a self-explainable notion and requires a deeper comprehension of human perception. The multimedia storyteller should familiarize himself both with the theory of communication in art and the technological techniques of expressing a message.

 

In this thesis I investigated the adaptability of narrative structure and different theories about narrativity in art and new media. Also, I examined several methods and tools of multimedia composition that are able to sustain or create narratives. By analysing the pieces of my concert from narratological, semiotical and compositional points of view, I exemplified how narrativity in multimedia can influence the perception of a story. However, the constant development in the digital art field demands frequent updates to the theories about narrativity in art and multimedia composition, as well as further research.
