EWF X Crawlspace: ◚

This year, Crawlspace has commissioned 5 works of digital literature for an exclusive EWF issue on their platform. Each work is accompanied by a Q&A buried in the source code, revealing the artists’ thought processes for creating animated, interactive, and generative pieces. Scroll through this special issue and check out the previous works to see how code, literature and approachable digital tools can come together in new and unique ways.
