As much as you love me is an interactive poetry project that consists of a Force Feedback mouse and an interactive poem. The project deals with guilt and tries to convey its message using the special properties of the physical and graphic interface. In order to hear the text, the user must collect objects on the screen. Each object collected sounds a non-apology which starts with the words don’t forgive me for…, and augments the physical difficulty of moving the mouse. The combination of the graphic representation and the growing physical effort required to move the mouse reinforces the attempt of the speaker to relieve herself from guilt.
