Dreaming Methods February 2008

New Project Launched

A new Dreaming Methods project is now available to experience as part of the video/net-art exhibition “Vagus” hosted by Year Zero One. “Clearance” is a collaborative digital fiction piece created by Andy Campbell and Judi Alston, featuring a protagonist trapped in a hypnagogic state during which he experiences apocalyptic visions. Click here to visit the exhibition which also includes work by Myron Campbell and Gregory Chantonsky.

Writing aint what it used to be
An article by Andy Campbell introducing amateur writers to the possibilities of digital fiction has been published by UK writing magazine “Writers’ Forum”. The piece outlines the potential of combining the written word with multimedia and how new e-book standards may soon change the way authors construct their stories. Read it here.
