The project is an examination of multimodal data storytelling. In practice, this is broken down into four components: data, semiotics, storytelling, and multimodality. Each of these is explored with studies of writing and research, precedents, and through works that were created centering each component. Multimodality is further broken down into six different modes: linguistic, aural, visual, haptic, gestural, and spatial. Data storytelling works were then proposed and created using a combination of these modes.
