'Speak: a hypertext essay' reproduces texts and images from an electronic literary work exploring the essay form using multimedia developed in 2001 - http://ensemble.va.com.au/speak. The book was produced in the following year. It also explores identity through a shifting personal and critical voice; intentionally abstract and experiential; highly constructed but somehow formless. The essay is structured as a series of fragments that are hyperlinked in their online form. Aptly described by one critic as booklike, the work is a simple experiment in engaging the idea of the book that isn't.
