It’s the video you’ve been waiting for! Well I have, anyway. Remember the art/poem I put together for the blog where I used lines of the Emily Dickinson poem which begins “There’s a certain slant of light…”? I mentioned that the app TypeDrawing generated a digital video of the piece coming together. It’s pretty cool, […]

Edit 6/6/13: Hyperlinked body of text, explanation to follow. Edit 6/9/13: As you read the following, please know that the entire passage is full of hyperlinks.  My goal was to link the whole thing to illustrate how easy it is to be influenced by outside material, whether it’s course material or apparently unrelated research.

It’s as though the key finally fits the lock in the dark, and the lock on the front door of the […]
