Hypercard Project


This is a hypercard project I completed for a computer class while at NSCAD in 1997.

Given that Hypercard was in many way a precursor to the web, I wanted to revisit this project as a document of my proto-web work.

I recall doing this very last minute, and at the time I was listening to a lot of Beethoven, so the project was a quick walk through complete with a sound sample of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony taken from the cassette I removed from my Walkman.

The cards are presented in a looping sequence:

1) Ludwig van
2) The Skull
3) The Hand
4) The Ear
5) Deafness
6) [back to Ludwig Van and Play his 5th]

Tech Details

I recovered this project in May 2012 using a USB diskette reader and the Basilisk II Mac emulator.
