The (re-)Mapping Moby Project is a creative and critical applied research experiment exploring affective embodiment and tracing its expressive potential in contemporary mixed media/mixed reality experience.

The research brings a classic literary text (Herman Melville's 1851 Moby-Dick) in conversation with contemporary digital mapping and mixed reality media technologies. Using the literary text as an inspirational base text, we are exploring ways to re-map the novel onto a collaboratively-constructed dynamic map interface that allows users to navigate experiences inspired by the text and to perform these narrative negotiations with an attention to new material reading and writing practices.
