ELO 2015: The End(s) of Electronic Literature

Alla Barns Rätt

Pernilla Stalfelt - Spinfy/Rabén & Sjögren (Sweden)

Kid E-Lit Exhibition
Tuesday, August 4 • 17:30 - 19:00 (Bergen Public Library)

Children’s literature can include non-fiction texts, and this app, developed by Spinfy, is an example. It is a creatively retold version of the The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child Rights in a way that is aimed at young children. Each spread is read aloud, and when the reader touches one of the illustrations, a sound is heard, or the speech bubbles that many illustrations have are read out. For instance, the page explaining that all children have the right to privacy shows a girl with a diary, and when you touch the diary, a voice whispers: “Ssh, don’t tell”. The app is an adaptation of a picture book Pernilla Stalfelt’s wrote and illustrated in 2010.
