Reconstituting Deena Larsen's Kanji-Ku

This project saw the reconstituion of Deena Larsen's 1999-2002 17 short poems for the web, entitled Kanji-kus." Because they were published on a website that used frames and Java Applets, the work had become inaccessible on contemporary browsers. We achieved our goal to retain the look and feel of these poems by updating them with HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript.
