The narrative you anticipate you may produce

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


This piece is a collaborative experiment in New Media Poetry combining text, images, and sound. Following the artist Christo's work ("wrapped" objects like Running Fence, Wrapped Pont Neuf, etc.), the collaborators on this piece developed one answer to the question: what might "wrapped" language look like in a digital environment? It is "interactive," requiring the reader/viewer to locate and click on bits of language (phrases, lines) as they appear on the screen. Before the piece begins, the order of the pages is randomly shuffled. The resulting order is represented by the serial number (in red) at the top of the screen. The backgrounds and animations on each page are randomly drawn. Finally, the reader's interaction with the screen is what sets the words in their final states.
