Alison Clifford‘s ‘The Sweet Old Etcetera’ reinterprets the poetry of E.E.Cummings for the web, introducing motion and interactivity to offer new ways of engaging with it. The project playfully explores whether motion and interactivity might aid understanding of the poetry with regard to the relationship between visual form and poetic content.
The project was funded with an Alt-W Award (Scottish Digital Media Fund) and was nominated for a BAFTA Scotland Award in 2006. Sound design by Graeme Truslove.
The work was part of the group show Alt-W: New Directions in Scottish Digital Culture at the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow, 2008.
