Body of Work

Author Shelly Jackson tells her personal stories through a hyper text format, but uses something much more primitive to to reveal her stories, her body.  The HTML hypertext format gives a fresh look on the memoir genre and is a very effective medium for her anecdotes by allowing the user to view the picture as a whole as well as…

My Mind Is Blown.

I decided to play “88 Constellations for Wittgenstein; (to be played with the Left Hand)” by David Clark.  This was by far the most interesting work on electronic literature I have encountered yet.  Everything about this was intriguing to me.

As the internet has become more accessible for people of all shapes/sizes/backgrounds/ages, the entertainment industry has geared more and more towards using the internet to advertise; obviously to attract more viewers/buyers/etc. Alongside advertising, however, they have begun to utilize the internet in a different way. The entertainment industry…

   Façade combines interactive fiction with images. Unlike Galatea, the user can type input but the output comes with visuals and verbal responses from the characters. The whole object of the game is to select a person, visit a married couple, and try to keep them together. For me, I was only able to resolve their issues once out of…
