Title: Embodied metaphorical imageries: investigation into the reative process of abstracted character movements
Synopsis:

This is a practice-led research where the researcher was intimately involved in the
research process as the participant (Gray, 1996, p. 4). The main theoretical frameworks underpinning this study were Shusterman’s Analytic Somaesthetics (2012) and Conceptual Metaphors (Fauconnier & Turner, Lakoff & Johnson, 2008). In this research, a body of creative works in the form of character animation pieces and its accompanying exegesis were produced. This exegesis detailed the researcher’s creative process in the development of the animated pieces and its application on the researcher’s practice in animation through a phenomenological lens. The animation pieces were developed through three iterative cycles of practice and two-tier analysis process, and a conceptual framework of creative process was constructed at the conclusion of the three iterations. The creative process of this practice-led research documented the interrelation of embodied cognition, phenomenological experience, and conceptual metaphorical mapping in the conception of abstracted character movements. Three contingencies; (1) linguistic constraints, (2) level of kinaesthetic awareness, and (3) issue of habits, were identified and discussed.
