The ever-growing collection of wwwork in image, interactivity, animation and technologies that keep bubbling up all over.
featured work: brushing up against wordhood
Rafael Barreto-Rivera's sound poem "Scrabble Babble 2" is reconfigured for web possibilities, while it addresses/dismembers the state of "wordhood". The spoken words of the poem are transcribed in a laundry list format. They lose much of their inter-connection when deprived of their sound. But each word may be examined as a visual form via the adjustable grid instead. Meanwhile Barreto-Rivera's sounds - letter sounds, laughing sounds and demonic babble sounds - provide audio commentery on the nature of language. Java applet and quicktime movie.

Little endings here and there
Listen to a fragment of Rafael Barreto-Rivera reading his poem "Here it has Rained" while you animate a 2-sided poem into a volley of words, each side's argument rebounding and landing in a heap in the middle. Java applet and quicktime movie.

Sketches on a napkin
A web project imbued in the tradition of surrealism and automatism. The concept is built from a collection of words gathered blindly from various texts, by both artists. Each wrote a poem from the total fourteen words selected, and these poems in their format provide the structural/visual basis for all the links in the work.
