Travis Alber has been conjuring creative projects out of the ether for 12 years. She has a master's degree in Interactive Multimedia from Southern Illinois University, and has shown her work in association with Drunken Boat, Flash Forward, Rhizome, the Electronic Literature Organization, One Club Interactive, the Contagious Media Showdown, and Communication Arts, among others. When not working on her creative projects (or rambling on about the ones she hasn't yet created but can't stop thinking about), Travis focuses on her personal quest for new reading experiences, embodied by her latest effort, www.BookGlutton.com, an ebook reader and website focused on collaborative reading environments.
Travis's interactive work focuses on finding a sense of place, narrative form, motion and interface experimentation. Time is a central theme throughout her work.
Some of her other projects include:
Thirty Days of Rain: An Interactive Haiku Series about San Francisco
Who Is Flora.net: An Interactive Postcard Narrative
Telequitter.com: A Tongue-in-Cheek E-Card Site for "Quitters"
BookGlutton.com: A Social Reading Website
ThisIsTravis.com: Her Personal Website
