Senghor on the Rocks

Written in the form of a traditional novel with a linear narrative structure and consistent first-person perspective, Senghor on the Rocks is also geo-referenced: a Google Maps API offers a satellite view of the story's current location on every page of the book. The mimetic representation of the book as object, along with the incorporation of innovative features such as satellite maps, invites the reader to reflect upon the differences between print and online reading. Since geographical information systems such as Google Maps usually do not provide the refined control of views that would be necessary to use the application for a literary project, a particular taxonomy of operation has been developed in order to control the map visualization as with a direction in a movie script.
