After our screening of the video submissions for the Remaking Moby-Dick project, Trish Harris (project curator) and I continued to accept more literary submissions from which we made a selection and collected together in a print volume, with QR-code links to other video and audio remakings. We even included contributions from more playful non-human poetry generators. It’s a truly inspiring collection of reflections with Melville’s Moby-Dick as an inspirational muse, and the breadth and talent of the contributors is astounding; from authors with multiple books of poetry and fiction, to academics with a love of media and literature, to musicians, photographers and fine artists, they all came aboard and made our project an enormous success. You can view the remaking blog for a list of contributors and links to find the full text, available online via Lulu and Amazon. Remaking Moby-Dick was published jointly by Art Line and the Pea River Journal.

In the spirit of all things Moby, I am working on yet another Moby-themed project. This is the Remaking Moby-Dick Project, an International multimodal digital storytelling event that will be screened at the Mixing Realities Digital Performance Festival in May 2013 in Kalrkskrona, Sweden, but also published and recirculated in other forms. I am working with curator Trish Bodiford Harris to coordinate this project, and we are currently seeking submissions and participants. You can read more about the project on our Remaking Moby-Dick blog. Come aboard and join the fun. We need you. Moby needs you.
*Update: In May 2013, the Remaking Moby-Dick Project YouTube version was screened at the “Mixing Realities Digital Performance Festival” in Karlksrona at the Blekinge Museum and in late 2013, the print version of Remaking Moby-Dick was published. Wahoo! It’s a wonderful collection of more print-centric creative reflections on the text, but also includes QR code links to select video components. (A more current blog post about the publication is also available with links to access the texts.)
