Synopses & Reviews
A convergence of old and new technologies, an unlikely marriage of print and digital, Between Page and Screen chronicles a love affair between the characters P and S while taking the reader into a wondrous, augmented reality. The book has no words, only inscrutable black and white geometric patterns that, when coupled with a computer webcam, conjure the text. Reflected on screen, the reader sees himself with open book in hand, language springing alive and shape-shifting with each turn of the page. The story unfolds through a playful and cryptic exchange of letters between P and S as they struggle to define their passionate but fraught relationship. Rich with innuendo, anagrams, etymological and sonic affinities between words, Between Page and Screen takes an almost ecstatic pleasure in language and the act of reading. Merging concrete poetry with conceptual art and the tradition of the artist's book with the digital future, Between Page and Screen expands the possibilities of what a book can be.
