The lit-digital interfaces are a species of electronic literature that apply digital technologies to word, sound and image to create an interactive literary experience.
These interfaces combine guided/static elements rooted in authorial intent with multi-media based interactivity, offering users control of the environment in ways that invite them to create their own "texts."
At the heart of these interfaces is an exploration of the dissolution of boundaries between "author" and "reader" and the multiple literary objects that potentially come into existence as meaning travels between the magnetic poles of sender and receiver.
