Associated Practices


in Narrative environment design

This is commonly the position of the narrator (third person, sometimes omniscient, narrators, for example the typical curatorial voice in museums and galleries).

it is typically the position of the narratee. However, please note that often, in narrative environments, the narratee will be physically inside the elements that constitute the diegesis while remaining mentally and psychologically outside the story. This can produce a useful instability (see metalepsis).

See also intradiegetic.

Outside the world of the story (the diegesis).

Usually used in reference to the narrator, also the reader or audience is typically extradiegetic. Thus classical narratology. See extradiegetic in Narrative Environment design for more.
