web site + book + e-book, 1999
The Book after the Book is a hypertextual and visual essay about cyberliterature and the net_reading/writing_condition. Its main focus is non-linear narratives, which reconfigure the literature/book relationship starting from the very notion of volume. Works that provide programming language a textual appraisal, creations that resort to videographic procedures in literary construction and play on the passivity and participation of the reader.
The Book after the Book was made possible by a Fundação Vitae grant and was launched at NET_Condition (ZKM, 1999). It was exhibited and awarded many times all over the world and it is considered a net 1.0 classic.
