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.
