Steve Cannon writes the following on
"TEXT.URE synthesizes literary fiction, visual abstraction, and user interaction. It uses a transcendent interface [Figure 1] to a non-linear narrative and by encouraging users to explore the visual space it mystifies and subverts the reading process. In the process of investigating the interface, the user learns how to reveal their version of the story."
