    This investigation looks at the nature of synchresis in filmic contexts, with a particular focus on film-dance. I have discussed language that can be useful in this exploration, and have attempted to define terms in order to better develop a means of conceptualizing what synchresis is, and how it functions in establishing and shaping connections between media. This theoretical work is the background for my investigation of synchresis in the three contrasting works that make up my creative portfolio. A better understanding of the complexity of synchresis in cross-media interactions provides a useful tool to unify and shape these interactions. The marriage of movement and sound is a central part of human experience and our experiences of music are potently transformed through visual gesture. Likewise film is transformed by music’s vitality and meaning‐shaping role. In other words, synchresis emerges from the primary experience of intermodality. An enhanced understanding of it provides a platform for possible further explorations of the different ways in which different media can be combined. It is hoped that composers might be able to usefully apply ideas from this investigation to intermedia works of their own.

    Video descriptions: Video 1: 2 hours post injection imaging of the caudal vein plexus area of 52 hpf recipient zebrafish receiving 0.2 mg/ml FSL-FLRO4-I transformed WKM cells. In the video, a large slow-moving cell tumbles along the endothelial surface. Elongated oval shaped erythrocytes move at a fast speed. Video 2: Embryos (50-52hpf) were injected with 0.125 mg/ml FSL-FLRO4-II-treated cells. Window one focused on the eye region. Video 3: Embryos (50-52hpf) were injected with 0.125 mg/ml FSL-FLRO4-II-treated cells. Window two focused on the heart region. Video 4: Embryos (50-52hpf) were injected with 0.125 mg/ml FSL-FLRO4-II-treated cells. Window three focused on the first half the yolk extension region. Video 5: Embryos (50-52hpf) were injected with 0.125 mg/ml FSL-FLRO4-II-treated cells. Window four focused on the caudal half of the yolk extension and the anal regions. Video 6: Embryos (50-52hpf) were injected with 0.125 mg/ml FSL-FLRO4-II-treated cells. Window five focused on the caudal haematopoietic tissue region. Video 7: Embryos (50-52hpf) were injected with 0.125 mg/ml FSL-FLRO4-II-treated cells. Window six focused on the tail region. Video 8: Temporal assessment of FSL-FLRO4-II labeled cells in the lower trunk area. The image was taken 2 hours post injection for the sham-injected fish. Video 9: Temporal assessment of FSL-FLRO4-II labeled cells in the lower trunk area. The image was taken 2 hours post injection for the fish transplanted with FSL-FLRO4-II treated cells. Video 10: Temporal assessment of FSL-FLRO4-II labeled cells in the lower trunk area. The image was taken 19 hours post injection for the sham-injected fish. Video 11: Temporal assessment of FSL-FLRO4-II labeled cells in the lower trunk area. The image was taken 19 hours post injection for the fish transplanted with FSL-FLRO4-II treated cells. Video 12: Temporal assessment of FSL-FLRO4-II labeled cells in the lower trunk area. The image was taken 43 hours post injection for the sham-injected fish. Video 13: Temporal assessment of FSL-FLRO4-II labeled cells in the lower trunk area. The image was taken 43 hours post injection for the fish transplanted with FSL-FLRO4-II treated cells.

    Restricted Item. Print thesis available in the University of Auckland Library or may be available through Interlibrary Loan. Streaming video available. Video supports the PhD thesis "Computational modeling and magnetic resonance imaging of microcirculation in the ocular lens" Thesis (PhD--Bioengineering)--University of Auckland, 2010. T2 weighted imaging of the bovine eye: https://mediastore.auckland.ac.nz/library/public/2010/MRI-cut.preview 3D reconstruction of the ocular lens’ sutures using tractography: https://mediastore.auckland.ac.nz/library/public/2010/sutures.preview TITLE: T2 weighted imaging of the bovine eye. The adaptation of MRI protocols for the ocular tissue was required to achieve a range of high contrast MRI results from this organ. Among various protocols available, the 3D gradient echo protocol was thought to be the most suitable. During this experiment, it was revealed that the ocular T2 properties vary throughout the eye and especially the ocular lens stood out from the rest of the ocular tissue. Using 3D surface rendering techniques and taking advantage of high contrast and high resolution data from the ocular lens, some iso-surfaces corresponding to different T2 relaxation times were rendered and visualized. It is believed that the concentric volumes detected in the lens were corresponding to its varying water-protein ratio from periphery towards the core of the lens. TITLE: 3D reconstruction of the ocular lens’ sutures using tractography. Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) was performed on the bovine ocular lens and it was noticed that the sutures structure of the lens was not distinguishable on images with no diffusion weighting. This was thought to be because of the close water content of the suture structure to its neighbouring fiber cells, leading to a smooth refractive index in the lens. However the sutures structure was evident in the diffusion weighted images, leading to the conclusion that the water mobility in these clefts is higher than that in the neighbouring cells. Using DTI data, eigenvectors were calculated in the 3D space. Streamlines were created in the sutures structure region by tracing the calculated eigenvectors. This 3D rendered structure showed the rotation and penetration of the sutures, from the polar regions towards the core of the lens. From the posterior pole to the anterior pole of the lens, the sutures seemed to rotate close to 60º which is very close to the findings of the literature. This work was encouraging for the future development of DTI technique as a non-invasive imaging method to study structural properties of the ocular lens.
