In the beginning was - not the word - but the experience. This phenomenological approach provides the basis for this book, which focuses on how a person-in-situation experiences and constructs meaning from a variety of cultural visual events.This book presents video-based processual methods for researching experiences in a variety of settings ranging from the museum, to news photography, and interactive media. The research led to the development of a set of methodological tools and approaches we term the reflexivity lab. The interaction in the experimental situation between the media and body, dialogue, moods, values and narratives have been investigated qualitatively with more than sixty informants in a range of projects. The processual methodological insights are put into a theoretical perspective and also presented as pragmatic dilemmas."Researching Experiences" is relevant not only for students and researchers in media and communication studies but also for practitioners within the fields of media, communication and experience design.

"The book supports the reader in moving beyond a verbal account of experience to a more complex, situated and nuanced account of experience as visual, embodied and spatial. In doing so the book offers ways to respond to the complex multimodal environment of the twenty-first century." -- Dr Carey Jewitt, Reader in Education and Technology, Institute of Education, University of London. "As new media technologies develop, new research methodologies are required to investigate them. Gjedde and Ingemann approach this important topic imaginatively, and with a wealth of experience." -- Dr Judy Robertson, Heriot-Watt University
