Near Life Experiences

The Flash website Golpe de Gracia, which can be translated from Spanish as "coup de grâce," depicts a near-death experience with a cast of characters created by Colombian hypertext author Jaime Alejandro Rodríguez. Hosted on the servers of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Rodriguez's text also plays with the idea of the "exquisite corpse" and "digital death," as it includes both deathbed drama and everyday digital desktops in its storytelling milieu.
