Softies is a series of animated, typographic poems created with the Mr. Softie vector typographicseditor. The author describes these works as “wrinkled squirming typographic poems (fresh in 2009).”Because of its malleable form, the work forces the user to move and engage with it. The ongoingreshaping of the words and the ambient music playing in the background add to its hypnotic quality.(Source: Description from the Electronic Literature Exhibit at the MLA 12)
