A browser based digital poem
'One for sorrow, two for joy, three for a girl and four for a boy, five for silver, six for gold and seven for a secret never to be told.'
Magpiiie is a work of digital poetry that explores the pursuit of 'success' and other materialistic things. Written and developed by Andy Campbell and Judi Alston, the piece uses photo-scanned twigs and branches fused with repeating lines of poetry and spoken word to create a tightly-woven 'nest' that can be explored using the mouse and your mouse’s scroll wheel. If you have a high-end mobile device (relatively new phone or tablet) you can load up the work and use your touch screen to navigate. The piece also works on Windows touch-enabled laptops and monitors.
Uncover the shiny objects wedged into the surface of the nest to release the poem.
