The Work and Views

Project for Tachistoscope {Bottomless Pit} by William Poundstone is a Flash-based online work of electronic literature.  The embedded interactive file below is the primary way readers will encounter it.  However, during the course of writing our book, we came to know it from many different angles, including the text of the story and subliminal spam words, the source code and source files, the paratexts that contextualized it, and a host of visualizations created by Jeremy. 

This path offers you a chance to see Project from a variety of angles, some of which merely document the piece, others create a new work from the piece.
