The Quixote

The Quixote is a web installation that uses Jorge Luis Borges' short story, 'Pierre Menard: Author Of The Quixote.' In his story, Borges challenges his own authority as the writer who is merely trying to correct a misconception of a novel that never existed, but whose original inspiration has become an institution itself. I used Borges' story to expose the formal aspects of the web, and show how previous ideas can become innovative if presented eloquently through a new form of art.
