Special thanks to: Professor William McClung for his enthusiasm for mathematics and his willingness to discuss digital issues with an artist not trained in mathematics, and to Professor P. Scott Stanfield for his amazing performancebased on nine recited wordsin reaching for a single volume and finding a specific poem from the book-lined shelves in his office library.
The grocery list was also designed to enhance the reader's connection to the ways in which domestic tasks are completed and was integrated into the hypertext after receiving feedback from beta readers regarding their uncertainty about having completed a reading. The grocery list is designed to provide the reader with a sense of completion as all items on the list are crossed out when all pages (excluding the colophon) have been read.
