Between page and screen
Borsuk, Amaranth Claire, 1980-
Composed by poet Amaranth Borusk and technology developer Brad Bouse, Between Page and Screen is a book of geometric images in black and white. However, if the reader visits betweenpageandscreen.com, they may "read" the book. Using the computer's webcam, the reader holds the book toward the camera and the software "reads" the images and displays the geometry as text: the poems that appear, a series of letters written by two lovers struggling to map the boundaries of their relationship, do not exist on either page or screen, but in the augmented space between them opened up by the reader. The book comments on how we read in a world of screen-based reading practices. THE READER MUST HAVE ACCESS TO INTERNET AND A WEBCAM IN ORDER TO READ THIS TEXT.
