This year, Hypertext provides a new publication and presentation opportunity: the Creative Track, which invited the submission of a broad range of creative works from a variety of artistic traditions that engage with the expressive potentials of hypertext, the link, and social media. We received 9 submissions and were able to accept 7 of them.

The creative track submissions will be presented at a public exhibition in the Sculpture Hall of Dalhousie University, along with the poster and demo reception, and a theatre performance that makes use of hypertext techniques. We are just as curious as you are!
