Note from Eduardo Kac: "Please note that it is impossible to convey the readerly interactivity and the spatiotemporal qualities of these pieces on a web page. The documentary images below serve as an introduction to this work.

Six different points of view of the holopoem Adhuc are provided below as an example of the complex discontinuities that structure the syntax of these holopoems.

The three views of the holopoem Astray in Deimos illustrate other aspects unique to holopoetry: fluidity of the verbal sign and semantic interpolation, i.e., mutability of the actual topology of words in space leading to changes in meaning."
