Abstract

In this chapter we focus on the recent development of visual method applications in the study of mobilities. We approach visuality by reflecting upon the multimodality inherent in working critically with visual methods. We discuss how video and photography (crafted as either film/documentaries, exhibits, collections, or as ethnographic snippets) as well as arts-based approaches such as painting, drawing, mapping, diagramming, and design are part of a broader movement to transcend the modal limitations of writing as a form of representation. Subsequently our chapter examines the reflexivity and performativity of visual research by discussing the significance of the regular failures, ruptures, and unexpected outcomes of visual fieldwork. Finally, we aim to encourage the development of visual mobilities research through experimental, multimodal, reflexive engagements with the visual and other sensorial domains by drawing from various artistic approaches and exploring the possibilities of working with new digital platforms and tools and with participatory research.
