‘The Sweet Old Etcetera’ and eLit

‚ÄúThe Sweet Old Etcetera” (by digital artist Allison Clifford) is an interactive story animating the poetry of EE Cummings. Where Cummings used the typewriter to expand the boundaries of poetry, Clifford uses Flash to bring words to life.

This is eLit (electronic literature) at its best, where interaction adds to the experience rather than replacing it, and it proves that digital can be beautiful too.
