Dotze sentits
Twelve Senses

Dotze sentits, Poesia catalana d'avui (Twelve senses, Today's Catalan Poetry) is a Mac/PC CD-ROM (in Catalan) based on the works, lives and ideas of twelve catalan poets: Blai Bonet, Joan Brossa, Enric Casassas, Narcís Comadira, Feliu Formosa, Pere Gimferrer, Maria Mercè Marçal, Miquel Martí i Pol, Josep Palau i Fabre, Francesc Parcerisas, Màrius Sampere and Jordi Sarsanedas.

The interface of Dotze sentits guarantees an easy approach to the subject: it keeps a surprise effect that incites the exploration of the CD-ROM and the reception of several multimedia materials around poetry.

Dotze sentits includes poems performed in video or audio by its authors, manuscript views, text and fonts animations, interviews, personal photographs, objects, works and hobbies commented by themselves. 

Through a theatre metaphor, with audio and animation elements, the interactor may organise a personalised poetry reading.

It contains also a more traditional encyclopedic approach with an exhaustive information: biography, bibliography and articles about each author and about contemporary Catalan poetry. 

Dotze sentits is a production by the Audiovisual Institute, edited in 1996 by the Pompeu Fabra University, Edicions Proa and Institut d'Edicions de la Diputació de Barcelona, and directed by Jaume Subirana and Xavier Berenguer. 

It received the Spanish Möbius 1996 award (cultural category).
