Internet project commissioned by ada 'web;
Digital Arts Study collection, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis
In 1998, novelist Darcey Steinke was commissioned by the website
ada 'web to write a short story specifically for the nonlinear
environment of the Internet. The central story is linked to
nineteen shorter texts, designed with structures called "frames"
that subdivide a single web page into smaller sections. The
inclusion of Blindspot, created as a work of fiction, in this
exhibition reveals how traditional distinctions between disciplines-art,
literature, design-are blurred by the new medium of the web.
