"[My boyfriend came back from the war" is a site where there are many frames consisting of sentences and pictures. The user has a choice of clicking what frame they want. This relates to the Borgesian view because the user is allowed to choose their own path. In the sense that the frames are trying to formulate a sentence, but it doesn't really come out that way, this relates to Vannevar Bush's views. There hypertext creates different phrases in different frames, and the reader has to make sense of it on their own. The forking paths in the site is either to click on a link or a picture; both of them take you to different perspectives.Lialina taught at New Media Lab (Moscow, 1994); Joint Art Studios (Moscow, 1995); University of Westminster (London, 1997); MUU (Helsinki, 1997); Kunst Academiet (Trondheim, 1998); Fachhochschule (Augsburg, 1998);University of Graz (1998) and Akademie der Bildenden Künste München(Munich, 1998–99);.
