Animated Models of Story Excerpts
In order of complexity:
The Baby Cried (2009): The short story ‘The baby cried, the mummy picked it up’ was Keith Devlin’s example of how complex the most simple story can be to interpret. This work took it a step further, to show why progressive interpretation is critical to accurate interpretation.
Model of first paragraph of Little Red Riding Hood by Walter de la Mare (for comparison with the other Red Riding Hood story).
Model of Three Scenes from Guardians of The Galaxy. This analysis focuses on high-level structure to understand how analogy emerges and connects remote situations.
A clean version of that process, in which the layout details are erased, can be seen in this version, Analogical structure in Guardians of the Galaxy.
