“It’s not opinions I’m interested in, but relationships, juxtapositions, apparitions and interpolations. Hypertext is the body languorously extending itself to its own limits, hemmed in only by its own lack of extent. And like the body, it no longer has just one story to tell.”

This passage illustrates what I’ve experience on tuesday: generate random meanings by clicking, typing, or dragging body parts of the patchwork girl. According to me, the metaphor of the human body is very relevant to make people understand in a poetic way the new possibilities offered by Hypertext compared to lineal novels’s constraints: explore a new form of narrativity as a percept, as opposed to a concept (Deleuze).
