there are uncountable aproaches to the treasures of shakespeare's sonnets.
working with literatary material of this dimension i wanted to translate
rather then interprete the lines into a new medial concept.
i left the order of all lines untouched. the principle of the perfrmance
is a cronological reading starting from a random point within the material.
the dialog form
most of todays writing takes place in electronic and online media. a
today's william s. could be a writer in a chat system writing fantastic
poems and getting an echo from an unknown and remote side.
the sonnets are transformed into a dialog of an online conversation.
the art of expression is a very temporary one. lines of beautiful language
disppeare into the electronic void. history becomes a questions of minutes
rather than centuries.
don't wait for an end. there is none. eSonnets are looped.
a time-stamped live-chat
while working at this project i found out that many users of my site
found it too dangerous and technically too demanding to download a piece
of software from a site that they did not exactly know.
the fear of buying a troyan horse is greater than curiosity. to meet
the different attitudes there are now two different versions of the eSonnets:
the most multimedial version with sound. that's why the presentation
file is about 760kb. the presentation can be viewed on windows-pc and
macintosh-based browsers with a shockwave plugin.
of version 2 matches version 1 minus the sound.
