Project 2: Verbal as Visual
Using Photoshop and Dreamweaver, take the content of an "old media," verbal text and create a series of hypertext screens that realize the original's effects by "visualizing" its verbal elements (letters, words, passages) using font, size, color, placement, backgrounds, layering, etc.
Take a look at this interpretation/remediation of the film Seven done by Erik Yanda, a student in a previous class.
The original text that you choose to work with can be either your own work or someone else's, but it should be an aesthetic or "literary" text, rather than something analytical or journalistic. (An alternative possibility: take a non-aesthetic text and make it aesthetic: take a news report of the Columbia disaster and make it a kind of verbal/visual poem in the tradition of "found poetry.")
