Description

This selection of six poems built with a type of composite image known as animated GIFs used to create the earliest animations in the Web. In Zervos' experienced hands (see his 'Dimocopo' suite), this simple technology can be very expressive indeed, as can be seen in 'Divorce' a kinetic concrete poem that uses moving typography to highlight some of the finer points in a divorce process.
