In my own drafting and redrafting of a digital poetics and practice, I am drawn to work that tries to pluralize narrative sequence. If an idea or story can be generated from a single semiotic sequence, what might be generated with multiple, simultaneous and linked sequences in an interface? How does a non-linear juxtaposition of micro-narratives alter our sense of time and space? What new narrative forms can we grow with our computational tools? Most of my material is captured and remixed from daily life, but it is in post-production (editing, programming, collaging) that I try to push beyond continuity to open up a temporal and spatial sense that is multiple and generative.
