This hypertext journey mapped on London’s Tube, is a cinematic tour de force by a poet of the digital. It earned an honorable mention in the 2001 Electronic Literature Competition, and the following write-up by competition judge Heather McHugh:
KOMNINOS ZERVOS: cyberpoetry underground A perceptual joy-ride, full of visual attractions and sonic energies, cyberpoetry underground is notable for its sheer momentum and solid graphic punsmanship. Animated text, three-dimensional letter-forms and 360-degree views turn electronic space into an extra-literary passage, certain areas of which the viewer can negotiate. At the end of some tunnels are the objects of cybertext poems, graffitissimi ultimately serving to remind us that getting there can be more than half the fun. For romping humor, cinematic verve and swerve, cyberpoetry underground earned its place among the top three.
I don’t think I can do better to assess this work, except to point in the direction of a new and much improved version of “The Adventures of i,” this time as a Quicktime VR movie. You’ll see how far this idea— and poet— have come in just a few years.
