Basics of Interactive Front End with Deconstruction of Poetry

As an extension of our "Creative Coding Introduction Workshop" on September.29th, at this workshop we are having a deeper dive with artist/instructor Frances Chai into one of the more niche and easy to learn applications.

"A construction whose literary aesthetics emerge from computation", "work that could only exist in the space for which it was developed/written/coded—the digital space".

This means that these writings cannot be easily printed, or cannot be printed at all.

By the end of the lesson, students will be able to : Style webpages with CSS/HTML Link pages together to build a hypertext interactive story/poem Know what electronic literature (a very cool and niche part of electronic art) constitutes Make an awesome piece of art/software

Artistic & Tech Concepts: Discuss the relationship between traditional human language and machine code language. Deconstructing a written piece while building a webpage by incorporating the structure and the semantic aspect of HTML (hypertext markup language). Looking at the webpage as an interactive finished piece and the code as a poem on its own.
