RIMA conceptually addresses strategies for survival by way of poetically re-framing the facts behind the effects of solitary confinement and isolation into a fictional present/future. Julie’s movement over a 12-hour inhabitation are translated into a relational virtual text stream (authored by Julie) and delivered to a live webpage and/or twitter feed (twitter fiction). The overall effect is a mimic of real-time thoughts, responses and actions, which over the twelve hours build into a fictional narrative blurring an indistinct present with a sci-fi future.
