Description (in English): 

Organized by the Genesis narrative into 7 parts, one for each day, this work places the Biblical story of the creation of the world in conversation with modern times. Its sociopolitical tone is reinforced with references to literary characters, postmodern theorists, scientists, wars, the Internet, and civil rights leaders. Each piece contains a small Flash animation or interactive piece, some of which are clearly e-poems. These are the most delightful parts of this work because they manage to be playful without compromising the tone of the poem, a strategy echoed throughout this whole work. Thuan strikes a delicate balance between solemnity and tongue-in-cheekiness that lowers our guard so the seriousness of his piece can come through to us. (Source: Leonardo Flores, I ♥ E-Poetry)
