by Dane Watkins


"Him" is a hypertext poem where the lines lead to different aspects of male identity cut out of magazines and the reader becomes lost in the permutation. This work is available on the web at comfylux.com/him and is forthcoming in the Eastgate Reading Room.



Born In Australia, Dane (Watkins) grew up in England and studied animation in Liverpool; he now works as a multimedia artist in Somerset. His recent work includes an interactive installation for the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital and ‘help’ which is in the Eastgate Reading Room. He is currently developing content for WAP sites.
