Description (in English): 

This hypertext work of poetry, theory, and narrative is exquisitely programmed in HTML 3.2 using JavaScript from 12 years ago, which means that it is currently best read in Internet Explorer, which retains its responsive elements. This DHTML piece uses JavaScript to modify the Document Object Model (DOM), which means that the document is the same, but once you activate certain parts of it, its rendering becomes modified with the addition of static or kinetic elements.

Memmott uses it in this poem to create layers of visual and textual information that is revealed as the reader interacts with different prompts. For example, the section titled “Sorts” allows for the reader to reveal texts by clicking on different parts of the image, seen below.
