Infinite Applications

"I appreciate the integration of video and interactive maps into storytelling, but what an unexhaustible technology we have in the sentence. How infinite its applications in complicating the growth and change that narrative purports to describe."

               —Kyle Beach, on The Short Form

I delight in this. As I am drawn more and more toward the experimentation that various new tools offer for making literary narratives and teaching about elements of the pursuit (audio, video, still images), I simultaneously get only more appreciative of what the sentence alone can do. There’s the pull toward the immediately compelling power of digitally produced sound and image, but can this beat the compelling power of the imagination, the original and most versatile multimedia device?
