This project uses Borges’ “Parable of the Palace” and reinterprets it with code to bring it into the interactive world.

In this microsite, "Parable of the Palace" crosses over with Inferno through time-sensitive Javascript.

There are 9 circles in Inferno, thus, this webpage changes 9 times a day with different skies and different interactive text. The time changes are related to Dante’s journey through the Inferno.



*Actual times are not represented. Discover the story by checking back frequently during the day.
