Abstract (in English): 

Dene Grigar discusses ways in which hyperlinks are utilized in three-dimensional multimedia performance works that offer a narrative or poetic focus. In the new spaces of three-dimensional performance environments, hyperlinking can be incorporated as a performative element into the work and therefore always makes a purposeful act necessary for the performance to unfold. Grigar argues that hyperlinking may denote a change of scene, the progression of a poem’s instantiation or the evocation of musical notes comprising a composition.
