still haven’t read Moby-Dick? try a single chapter.

Which chapter? Well, at the Remaking Moby-Dick YouTube playlist, you can parse videos inspired by single chapters. Find one that inspires you.

Then … do you need to purchase a copy? Not yet, not really. You can go to the University of Virginia Moby etext and click and read.

Let me urge you to go. And then read.

press clippings for the Mixing Realities festival and Remaking Moby-Dick project

The festival was amazing, with augmented reality workshops and talks, a Moby-Dick marathon reading that included both co-located and Skyped-in readers from around the world, and several installations (including Remaking Moby).

What is next for Remaking Moby-Dick? A print version of contributed work. Regional readings and screenings. And, yes, ongoing contribution, creation, and curation. So if you missed the festival and still want to contribute, stay posted. We will post a new call for work in early June.

Thank you, Remakers, for your beautiful, thoughtful work. Your viewing subjects have loved it so far.

We love the dreamy menace of this remaking, the merge of what seems to be memory and/of threat, the sense of union with the water and its creatures. A gorgeous video.
