Editions At Play

Visual Editions and Google's Creative Lab

“Editions at Play” features “books powered by the magic of the internet” that challenge the limits of traditional presentation and use technology to make reading and writing more engaging and experiential than ever. These are not e-books, but performances that exist purely in digital and mobile spaces. One story uses visuals to grow, bloom, and wilt like a flower, anther allows users to change the text of a story, and third uses a mobile device’s camera to ramp up the tension of a ghost story. “Editions at Play” creates a home for narratives that are familiar but play with the traditional book form to challenge ideas of what digital storytelling looks like, inviting people to experience literature in dynamic new ways.
