Entre Ville (2006)

Entre Ville is a web art project commissioned by the OBORO New Media Lab in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the Conseil des arts de Montr

Full Description

Entre Ville takes place in my back alleyway. My studio window opens into a jumbled intimacy of back balconies, yards and alleyways. Daily my dog and I walk through this interior city sniffing out stories. Poetry is not hard to find between the long lines of peeling-paint fences plastered with notices, spray painted with bright abstractions and draped with trailing vines. Entre Ville is presented in the vernacular of my neighbourhood, where cooking smells, noisy neighbours and laundry lines criss-cross the alleyway one sentence at a time.

Entre Ville was commissioned by the OBORO New Media Lab for the 50th anniversary of the Conseil des arts de Montreal. It launched at the Musee des beaux-arts de Montreal, April 27, 2006. Entre Ville is a DHTML hypertext narrative based on my poem, "Saint-Urbain Street Heat" which was first published in the UK online literay jounal NthPosition.com, and in now archived in the The British Library's perminant collection in association with the UK Web Archiving Consortium.
