So after this morning’s lecture, the Hypertext Essay is definitely starting to make a lot more sense. We have to use the design elements to express ideas surrounding Hypertext.
Non Linearity can be expressed through Structure which does not follow a predicable path. Another idea could be to purposely create a structure which is, from the outset, seemigly organised and deliberate and then breaking this structure by employing a moment of diveragence from this experience of structure, throwing the viewer into a state of confusion and discomfort.
Links can be hidden and take viewers on a path that is confusing and cannot be traced back to a specific starting point. An obviously marked link could in fact link to nothing.
