The Last Performance

"Taking the cupola of a Croatian mosque as its structuring device, The Last Performance [dot org] invites participants to contribute text for one of its many writing spaces, here termed 'lenses' (the project will be complete with 4680 lens divided into six sectors, each a slice of the virtual dome). Participants respond in some fashion to one of four constraints or directives - e.g. 'construct a last performance in the form of a heavy foot that weighs 2 tons and remains in good condition' - or to text already incorporated into the work; lenses then function as the raw (material) data for performance and algorithmic process alike. In some sense we might consider the lens as the current iteration of a hypertextual node or lexia, a limited though perhaps useful comparison prompted by the project's emphasis on architectural design and the material forms of text." -- from Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 2
