Anacrón: Hipótesis De Un Producto Todo

"Augusto Marquet (Mexico City, 1982) . . . is a designer and a bandit. He holds a desirable collection of secrets. Gabriel Wolfson (Puebla City, 1976) is a Mexican poet and writer. He has a valuable object called Caja. Anacrón: hipótesis de un producto todo is a digital poem in which the screen becomes a kind of hypertextual minefield, replete with recombinatory text, colourful images and arresting sounds of the dead. Developed using Acrobat and Flash, this mercurial piece responds to the pointer's position over the text, delivering alternate texts, frenzied movement, sound and video clips, and animated sequences. Anacrón's mischievous poetics merge Mexican folkloric traditions (such of the Day of the Dead) with Flash aesthetics and functionality, allegorizing the capriciousness of time and mortality. Reading this work, one cannot help but consider how death comes for us all— including multimedia development software." -- From Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 3
