Alt-w | The Sweet Old Etcetera

The Sweet Old Etcetera (2006)

Cycle 04 Alt-w Production Award - Alison Clifford
collection.eliterature.org

This interactive work is based on the poetry of e. e. Cummings. His poems have been reinterpreted using animation and sound. This fresh response to the original printed word, releases it from the confines of the physical page, bringing it into a digital environment in a playful way.

This work is archived in the Electronic Literature Collection, an initiative of the Electronic Literature Organisation. Based at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, they collect works with important literary aspects that take advantage of the capabilities and contexts provided by the computer.
