Interactive Art, CA, 2010
This work examines how the letter X became part of Western languages and how it has been used as a cipher for otherness and the unknown. As a survey of meanings and histories, it looks at how the letter X has influenced the realms of law, psychoanalysis, medicine, technology, geography, and linguistics. The piece consists of many interactive animated collages with voiceovers and music creating a rich and strange interactive experience for the viewer.
