A good example of how cultural interfaces stretch the definition of a page while mixing together its different historical forms is the Web page created in 1997 by the British design collective antirom for HotWired RGB Gallery. The designers have created a large surface containing rectangular blocks of text in different font sizes, arranged without any apparent order. The user is invited to skip from one block to another moving any direction. Here the different directions of reading used in different cultures are combined together in a single page.
