Pivot Points

The "pivot points" of Ashplant are the multiple backbones of this strange organism. Most of the site's other tools and projects draw on these, and links to the pivot points create unexpected avenues of exploration: when a project cites a secondary source, for instance, the annotated page for that source can take the reader to another source, a topical essay, or another project.

These pivot points have all involved contributions from many students and often other members of our Collaborative. Any of them will provide a useful entry point to Ashplant.
