Asciidarij 2

Jaka Železnikar, 2013

odzivna interaktivna spletna vizualno zvočna pesem

Asciidarij 2 je odzivna spletna vizualno zvočna pesem. Vtipkano besedilo izpiše v vzorcu, prek katerega se, glede na vtipkano, izmenično vrtijo prikazane ali skrite animirane črke abecede, z dodanimi zvoki tipkalnega stroja. Asciidarij 2 je tehnično posodobljena (html5) različica starejšega dela Asciidarij (2001). Povzema osnovni koncept, elemente in funkcionalnosti, ni pa identična izvorni pesmi. Ime pesmi je sestavljeno iz (angleškega poimenovanja) Ascii Art, ki se nanaša na tvorjenje podob s pomočjo črk, in Abecedarij (Abecedarium), ki je ena od prvih dveh slovenskih tiskanih knjig, knjižica z abecedo. Delno odprta, uporabniku prepuščena vsebina pesmi svoj izraz in pomen gradi tudi prek kombinacij tradicije in sodobnega digitalnega, programsko podprtega jezikovno-likovnega izraza ter s tem povezanih tehnologij oziroma medijev. (Delo uporablja HTML5, CSS3, Javascript (delno jQuery). Črkovna družina: Elsie Swash za animirano abecedo ter Andale Mono oziroma drugo enoširinsko sistemsko črkovno družino.)

responsive on-line visual and sound poem

Asciidarij 2 is responsive on-line visual and sound poem. Typed text is displayed in the ascii art pattern. Over the text the animated letters of the alphabet are shown and hidden, according tothe typed text. Also sounds of typewriter are triggered. Asciidarij 2 is based on the older, technically obsolete work Asciidarij (2001, titled Typescape in English version). Asciidarij 2 recapitulates basic concept, elements and functionalities but it is not identical to the originating poem. The alphabet used is Slovene (a native language of the author). The name of the poem is combined from Ascii Art (a way of composing images from letters) and Abecedarium or Abecedarij, along with Catechismus the first printed book in Slovene intended for learning the alphabet. The protestant reformer Primož Trubar had it printed in 1550. Part of the content of the poem is open and up to a reader that interacts with it. Other part of the poem's message lies in the interplay of different conceptual and media traditions related to visual poetry and contemporary digital, programme based languageexpression. (The work uses HTML5, CSS3, Javascript (partly jQuery). Font family of animated alphabet is Elsie Swash. Other font used is Andale Mono or similar monospace system font.)
