Web project Approximations/Contradictions reprogrammed in HTML5
Dia Art Foundation in New York has reprogrammed Ana Torfs’ only web project Approximations/Contradictions (2004) in HTML5 as Flash is no longer supported by most browsers. The size of the work has been adapted to contemporary screens. For an introduction to this work, based on the “Hollywood Songbook” by Hanns Eisler and Bertolt Brecht, look here.
