Following up from our group presentations the past couple week, we’re going to close the semester by reading Welcome to Pine Point.
Please consider one or more of the following questions in your blog posts this week.
-How does this piece of electronic literature recreate a sense of place? What are the building blocks of place in this work?
-How is Pine Point similar to a traditional documentary-style film? How different?
-How does Pine Point consider the viability of niche interests in an online world?
-How does Pine Point record the transformation of the act of memorializing between the 1970s and the present?
-Is the inclusion of traditional objects as a memorial of place in conflict with a memorial of place enabled by digital representation?
