Entry Description

Drawing from two of Edgar Allan Poe’s most well-known works, "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Raven," our 360 degree video installation explored what happens when literary texts are lifted from the “page to the stage” and then reimagined through the use of new technology.

Examining the concept of “shadow” through text, image, and sound, the project is inspired by Poe’s texts themselves and by nineteenth-century crankies, an art form in which an illustrated scroll is unwound in a circular fashion, revealing images that complement a spoken story or song.
