[BCM 325] Iterations, Developments & Nova: Making my DA Beta!

Hey there,

Below is a video outlining the progression of my Digital Artefact over the past couple of weeks!

As you can see, my Digital Artefact has undergone a number of significant alterations which I feel will help to increase the utility of my final video essay is a source of information for avid science-fiction academics, enthusiasts and even those who may simply be interested in the use of nova to speculate about the future in the next 5, 10, 50 years or beyond. While my DA is aimed at a hugely active audience, it should be noted that the audience itself is relatively niche and consumes content that is unique and highly specialised.

Overall, I happy with the trajectory of my DA and I feel that I have successfully incorporated feedback into the iteration process. It is my goal to continue researching and publish a draft ‘script’ of my video essay on my blog in the near future to permit further feedback prior to uploading the final version to Youtube.

I am excited to explore the representation of nova and other similar concepts to begin to understand their value in engaging with the future in the upcoming weeks!

Until then,

-Josh
