While transforming my research paper into a 3D visual, I decided on a laptop because people use their electronic devices on a daily basis for any and everything. Since my paper revolved around the use social media and hate speech/racism I decided that the laptop would be a perfect fit. For the multimodal transformation, my audience would be the students and staff that attended the CSW. My visual was appealing to the eye and intriguing to read once approached. I felt that this visual representation would draw people in and get them to ask questions. The visual was very interactive and informative. I included real posts from Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter of heinous individuals and their posts to flip through.
Pathos is very much included in my transformation because it’s based on how many individuals feel about other people or groups. My paper goes on to explain how hate speech and racism are protected under the first amendment so that would fall under Logos. People have many suggestions that it is not protected but others feel otherwise. My evidence of hate speech and racism on different social sites proves credibility how it is all over the internet. My visual is relevant because racism and hate speech has always been out there (said and placed upon people) but now it is spread another way (social media).
I believe that nothing is less important in my visual because everything about my paper and turning my paper is relevant and could be useful in conversation. My project had lots of colors from the metallic tape/gift wrap to the colors of the social media logos. Images of different social media sources were used, facts and their sources were posted. The colors I chose were used to draw people into my direction. I knew that things that are shiny would catch the attention of anyone of any age. Once people approached, they were appalled by the use of words and negativity that people use social media to degrade others. I also included notepads so that people could write positive messages and place them in a box of positivity only. The decision was made on where to place everything would be from the idea of doing homework every night. While doing homework, I have so many tabs open at once for one assignment I place each tab in a new browser and place them side by side to see everything. Everything about the project, its colors, and images and purpose was on purpose. Nothing about my project was a mistake.
As said before, I chose this type of remediation to represent my paper because social media and electronics are the 25/8 trend and once introduced, you’re hooked. The person behind the screen of any electronic could say and incite anything and with that could promote anything.
