Down The ASCII Hole is an interactive net adaptation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, wandering between links of scrambled text and animated ascii-art fields. These impressions are based on the illustrations from the original book, alongside impressions of products and ads from the net.
The story is re-translated and re-born in scrambled English and coded into Leet language (see title). In order to read the texts or to view the whole image, the human body must move as a cursor: wandering, scrolling, clicking, zooming (in/out), mimicking actions that resemble everyday web surfing, asking to break from the real into the virtual. Textuality becomes hypertextuality — The WWW as Wonderland, Alice — as a clueless-geek girl, the navigation as a poetic user experience.
