hyper-nomadic textual journeys
gita hashemi

At the time that this hypertext was written, 14.4 and 28.8 modems were still the most common in homes and outside institutions where I had imagined cyber wanderers might read poetry online. A key visual aspect of the piece is lost now in 2007 because of the increased speed of data flow. In 1998, the thin blue that is embeded as a background image tiled slowly from the top to the bottom of the screen thus creating a visual transition between pages. I decided to keep the original code and structure intact rather than update them for current state of technology. This piece is then a testament to its time that, though only a few years ago, is several generations in the past in the course of technological development that leaves us so little time to explore and ponder the medium.
