North Country (Audio)

Jan 01, 1995
Created by Helen Thorington
The second in a series of hypertext-inspired stories for radio: a narrative that uses short blocks or fragments of texts to shape a web of linked ideas that reflect the way the mind works. In North Country, meaning and memory, and fiction's role in both are part of the plurality of connections made. The cast of characters includes a forensics expert, a lawyer, a dead woman, and another woman who travels in a text based virtual world similar to the biological world once inhabited by the dead woman; a tamarack tree and the eleven Eastern woodrats remaining in New York State. With an original sound score by the artist.
