The Dreamlife of Letters

Brian Kim Stefans's The Dreamlife of Letters is a poet's playful meditation on the nature and function of language in kinetic two-dimensional space. Based on an appropriated text, Dreamlife is a work in which individual letters of the alphabet seem to take on their own distinct and lively characters.

Author description: A Flash animation, based on a text by Rachel Blau DuPlessis, that attempts to explore the ground between classic concrete poetry, avant-garde feminist practice, and "ambient" poetics (that's really just plain fun to watch).
