Abstract:

An insomniac writer moves to a small coastal town to investigate the work and disappearance of a cult web artist. This multimedia fiction, in which no single page is ever the same, explores the liminality of the “web book” as a space between abundance and loss, novelty and familiarity, integration and dispersion.
