Introduction

For this project, you will create a web-based experience in the form of a navigation or a journey through a space. Think of a place that is important to you. This place can be real or imaginary and it can be on any scale, enormous or tiny. You will create a series of linked html pages (no fewer than 25 and up to 50) that take a visitor through this place with you.

This project emphasises your creative portrayal of this place to a visitor through the use of first-person perspective. Are you taking us on a tour of a place small and intimate, like your grandmother's jewlery box? Are you taking us on a journey through an imagined otherworldly landscape? Are you taking us on a walk through the woods behind your childhood home? Or someplace else?

Your webpages can link in a linear fashion, or they can link to each other as a tree or a non-linear, multi-path navigation experience (think choose your own adventure books). Look at example “Twine” sites for inspiration twinery.org.
