We read and write messages so quickly now. How does the way we feel things, notice things and communicate things compare to that of writers of great literature?

Flictions is an experiment in the use of language where you can observe the differences and similarities for yourself.

Each text page has a quote from a work of literature juxtaposed with a live feed of tweets that include a word or phrase found in the quote.

The quotes are from the slower writing process and will not change. The tweets are not only quickly-written, but they change from day to day.

Slow and fast together.

Check the menu links for various ways to find your way around and have some fun.

New texts are constantly being added.
