Abstract

Sixgun was the final outcome of my Masters degree in Digital Practices and is significant in exploring new approaches to the hypercomic form. At its core, Sixgun was an attempt at resolving the inherent conflict between the spatially based medium of comics and the non-spatial relationships between linked lexia that are typical of most web-based hyperfiction. Most significantly, the piece introduced the concept of panels that would operate as hyperlinks but also remain as constants across the two pages being linked so as to reinforce the spatial relationship between lexia.
