Light-Water: Mosaic is a meditation
on interactions of light and water. The work was composed using Dreamweaver.
This software makes possible complex dynamic html scripting. In the case
of Light-Water, special emphasis was placed on creating Timelines. The
space-time possibilities for literature can now be more adequately realized
through the use of spatio-temporal dhtml editors. Timelines were used
to explore the kinetic properties/spirit of light and water.
