fingerbend, by Will Luers

{ fingerbend }

An insomniac writer moves to a small coastal town to investigate the work and disappearance of a cult web artist. Like the subject of his research, he can leave nothing outside the narrative: lists, blog entries, mobile photos, loops, and draft sketches of stories.

This multimedia fiction, in which no single page is ever the same, explores the liminality of the "web book" as a space between abundance and loss, novelty and familiarity, integration and dispersion.

"The people in that town were not very honest, but they were lazy. And strangers never lingered there. It was not an attractive place, it would have been difficult to explain why it was a place at all. It was called Fingerbend- no one knew why."
