Map of a Future War

Description (in English): 

Described by the author as a "Spatial narrative./Repeated access of a character set as data." In New Directions in Digital Poetry, Chris Funhouser notes that the author "...engineers, usning Flash and Javascript, a visually demanding poem that reflects the refined attributes ow WWW-based literary hypermedia." Funkhouser writes "Map of a Future War . . . does not limit itself to existing as an artwork about the injustices of business or to the deception and complexities of numbers, the miasma of trade. Ferrailo also acknowledges human failings and grief outside the realm of commerce, thereby suggesting that these collapses may be related."
