Description (in English): 

This multimedia work uses HTML5 and the JQuery library to produce a simple yet effective interface for it to unfold. The physical space between the sliding words GAFFE and STUTTER echo the Deleuzian dualities between the physicality of the mouth and its ability to break down and ingest food and produce language and meaning. Trettien uses this interface to establish other dualities in her poem: code and displayed language, signal and noise, drawing and writing, and more. (ELC 3)

Technical notes: 

Available as both a chapbook, printed by the "dead letter office" of Punctum Books, and as a webtext using jQuery, JavaScript, and HTML/CSS.
