‘Camberland’ Coauthored/cocreated with Jason Nelson. 2014.
Everything leans in the land of camber…
Camberland is an interactive digital poetry artwork published in The New River: A journal of digital writing and art, Virginia Tech University, USA.
This piece is a collaboration with digital poet Jason Nelson. We both contributed our writing, visuals, and voices to this piece. It is an early exploration in new HTML5 techniques, but also an exploration of imaginary lands – green pastures and dusty rural bus stops, dilapidated houses and cows that holler like dinosaurs. Each page teams moving images with poetry, and extra roll-over texts and sounds to explore. As the viewer moves their mouse or finger around the page, they create the poetry – the words spill from their touch.
See some screen shots below… In three of these four screen shots, the poetry spilling onto the page from the mouse movements is mine (not the front page enter text). These screen shots may make this piece look a little chaotic, but you will get a better feel for this piece by exploring it yourself and making your own poetry patterns with your mouse or fingers (on touch screen).
