I've worked online for money since 1997 in many roles from site-builder to information architect, project manager, UX consultant and plenty more.

However back when the internet was new and interesting I discovered the internet as part of my post-grad writing course so a lot of my creative output in the late 90s was in hypertext format and I won a few prizes for this work.

A short hypertext creative about what starts when you pick a thread off a stranger's coat. This won The Country Road Hypertext writing prize in 2001.

This one really pushed the envelope on what you could do with HTML at the time. Being a piece from the late 90s there are plenty of animated gifs and frames in use (one section uses 17 frame elements). It incorporates branching, random poetry concrete and an awful lot of late 90s inspired theory.

The Casino Project won the Swinburne University Coursework Award across all depts for 1998.

A thread

Fair to say that the tutor wasn't expecting a 10,000 word hyper essay when I handed this one in in 1997!

I had never seen a hyper essay like this, so I made the form up as I went along - it went hand in hand with the topic, which mixes a bit of Deleuzism with some frame theory to make a point about liquidity of identity. At the time my identity was itself somewhat liquid, I was reinventing myself after being an actor, the orginal profession of the 'person without edges'.

Early internet designs

A gallery page of some late 90s and 2000s style webdesigns that either I did or was involved in the creation of.

Mobile and the demise of flash pretty much killed my interest in web design per se.
