This year I am a recipient of a TERMINAL net art commission that I used to create a series of poem interpretations for the browser.
Three classic works of literature from the 20th Century (“O Captain, My Captain”, “On the Road”, and “Waiting for You at the Mystery Spot”) are remade for the browser using the language of the web (HTML5 and CSS) as the primary agent of transformation. In the translated poems, I am not interested in writing the foundational text for the poetic experience. Instead, I wanted to design a web user’s visual experience of the works. The works adhere to the confining graphic formatting rules of current web standards, and include text, hypertext, images, videos, and audio.
