Re: [-empyre-] what work are women doing now?
in.finite sounds very interesting. Please email me about the work's
I particularly like the idea of the meditative white space.internal landscape.
It is interesting the ways in which art forms evolve and develop and sometimes
there are things that become "givens" -- like black vr spaces -- but there is really
no reason that they should be that way.
Or one way of approaching an art form becomes dominant and other ways are overlooked.
I'm thinking, for instance of the Adventure story format that Infocom pioneered --
I think Nick and Noah cover some of these early approaches to enarrative in their book -- but linked
hyperfiction became more prevalent (underneath there are actually structural simalarities)
I'm not sure why. Maybe partially because those of us who developed the field
worked in this way and also because of Eastgate's storyspace and, of course, the web.
What are other women on this list working on?
