@Gua_Um Conto Digital

"António Abernú (b. 1973) began studying Aerospace Engineering at the University of Beira Interior, Covilhã, but ended up in a Drama school in Évora - Cendrev." "This multimedia hypertext created in Flash tells the story of a man who wanted to be water. Aural and ambient imagery dissolve together, mixing a surreal fiction with hydrological facts. How do the underwater network of internet cables that make this work possible co-evolve with the aquatic channels through which information and memory flows? A meta concern that emerges through this piece is the question of what it means to make a work using Flash 2013 when the platform itself is as limited a resource as the water trickling across the screen? Concerns surrounding the sustainability of computational platforms and the sustainability of the earth entwine in @gua." -- From Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 3
