American Ghosts (2006)

American Ghosts is an interactive fiction created in Flash using text, photographs, audio, video, and other elements. This work examines personality archetypes as they appear in selected Revolutionary War heroes, and how those archetypes continue to survive, and be acted out, within contemporary American life.

This piece is not simply a commentary on historical perspective--through its ending, it suggests the full extent of our political and social responsibilities.
