Girl iPad Narrative

Experimental e-publication that creates an interactive diagram from the text content of Jamaica Kincaid’s prose poem Girl. The secondary text Performance and the Gendered Body explains that Girl is like an instruction manual for the speaker’s idea of how to be a woman.

This “instructional” metaphor is expressed formally in the diagram structure of the design, allowing for the text to literally construct the narrative.
