    Multimodal diegetic narrative tools, as applied in multimedia arts practices, possess the ability to cross the spaces that exist between the physical world and the imaginary. Within this paper we present the findings of a multidiscipline practice-based research project that explored the potential of an audio-visual art performance to purposefully interact with an audience’s perception of narrative place. To achieve this goal, research was undertaken to investigate the function of multimodal diegetic practices as applied in the context of a sonic-art narrative. This project direction was undertaken to facilitate the transformation of previous experiences of place through the creative amalgamation and presentation of collected audio and visual footage from real-world spaces. Through the presentation of multimedia relating to familiar geographical spatial features, the audience were affected to evoke memories of place and to construct and manipulate their own narrative.
