Aesthetic and Art
~ Majken Jacoby
Inter-modality is about the coexistence of several modalities. Clinical experience leads me to consider two kinds of inter-modality: alternating inter-modality and simultaneous inter-modality.
Alternating inter-modality supposes a more or less rapid oscillation between two or more modalities over a period of time. For example, doodling on a page, changing it graphically and giving it a title can take a couple of minutes and uses two modalities – images and word.
Simultaneous inter-modality uses several modalities at a time. For example, the same doodle could evoke the smell and the movement of someone picking a flower. Two modalities are present at the same time – smell and corporeal movement, such that the modalities of image and word have faded into the background of existence; writing and drawing would then represent the mediality of this creative action.
