Inanimate Alice Is Up

I met up with the novelist Kate Pullinger a couple of days back in Leicester. She passed me a neat little bookmark with the URL of Inanimate Alice, her latest collaboration with babel. Inanimate Alice is the story of 8 year old Alice told through sound, text, games, image and video. The piece has been developed in sections - Episode One and Episode Two are up at present - which push flash to new levels of expression. It is a real multimedia tour de force. I particularly enjoyed the frantic soundscapes that give the episode one their adrenalinated feel. There is also a blog which adds an additional frame to the narrative. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to see what see the new kinds of narration that networked computer can deliver!
