To the east there is the broken web
Print, Post Digital, systems approach
“To the east there is the broken web” was a self Initiated investigation into how literature and the novel exists post digitally. This became an analogue translation of the text based adventure game ‘The Hobbit’ released in 1982 for the ZX Spectrum. I wanted to explore how the systems of the game, including those influenced by its technological limitations could be translated into a print setting.
I converted the 8-bit digital imagery into an analogue setting using screen printing and typeset the dialogue in its entirety following the directional commands as used in the game.
