The most successful Web projects are those that have not changed with the times but have simply added more Web sites to the forest. Most of the Web has remained the same as it was and most of the Web is just like the rest of the Web. And Shakespeare can help us understand this.

HAMLET, a Desktop Performance is a piece that uses the framework of a play to examine the main character of Hamlet. In the play, Hamlet is a man who is faced with the task of finding out why his father died, a task that he is unsure of how to complete. Throughout the play, Hamlet struggles with his own identity and his purpose in life. The performance is a digital interpretation of Hamlet that allows the audience to see his inner thoughts, and references to the play, through the score. The performance is the first of many pieces that explore the dynamics of a character and the way he or she is perceived.

Shakespeare, the great writer, and poet is a very good example of how to use language, to describe the events and actions, to describe the heroes, creatures, and nature. Shakespeare’s plays are full of events, they are full of life, and poetry and they are full of the world of feelings and emotions and thoughts. Shakespeare’s plays are full of action, the action of the present and of the past, the action of the people, creatures, and nature. The language of Shakespeare is full of metaphors, similes, puns, idioms, and proverbs.
