Diffractions Through

"Diffractions Through" is an interactive poem written by Jim Rosenberg using HyperCard and published by Eastgate Systems in The Eastgate Quarterly Review of Hypertext (Volume 2, Number 3). The poem focuses on the reader's interactions with different sets of word clusters. The work was published on floppy disk for Windows and Macintosh, along with another Rosenberg poem, "The Barrier Frames."

From the publisher's description:
"Interactive poems that invite the reader to explore the aural and visual possibilities of densely package word clusters -- groups of words overlaid in physical and syntactic space. The mouse peels away layers of text, summoning waves of imagery from the depths."
