WRITTEN: Part three is an infinite printer that transforms humanity’s text into written word.

ORAL: Part two is a terrain of thematic zones communicated through the aural tradition. Spoken phrases are projected into precise cones that resound with deep literary themes – love, war, death, faith, knowledge and identity. The vast single space is differentiated by sound and light, reverberating with personal and emotive atmospheres in a larger thematic ecology.

DIGITAL: Part one is a room-scale datascape of hypertext literature. As the world reads, words flow into the exhibition in real-time and are processed through statistical analysis. Visitors step into a dynamic visualization and interact with, explore, manipulate and graphically represent new literary Big Data.
