Directive: For this assignment, groups will design and write a mystery. Mysteries may take any form, but should include both an extended narrative (story) and visual components (film, video, photography, graphic images, etc.). Using theories of signification and the social unconscious from class readings, groups will embed within their mysteries hidden “clues” along the way, presented in both narrative and visual modes. This is intended as a creative project, so groups should feel free to experiment with the assignment.
Mysteries are due at the beginning of class on Wednesday, Feb. 17, at the beginning of lecture. As a group, you will hand in (1) the web address for your project, and (2) all group members’ peer evaluations.
