New(er) Digital Literature

In Fall 2008, I taught a second-year literature course that looking at recent electronic literature. This morning my inbox had a message from the ELO regarding new exhibit of “new(er)” digital literature that is currently being hosted by Austin Peay State University in Tennessee. The exhibit has been curated by Alan Bigelow. And I am happy to see that a number of my favourite contributors to the ELC Vol 1 are including in this exhibit.

“Searching for a New(er) Digital Literature” is an exhibition of twelve multimedia works that offer readers representative examples of
new digital poetry and fiction on the web. Curated by Alan Bigelow,
it includes work by Jim Andrews, Marvin Bell & Ernesto Lavandera,
Sommer Browning & Mark Lomond & Johanne Ste-Marie, Andy Campbell, J.R. Carpenter, Chris Joseph & Kate Pullinger, Tammy McGovern, Stuart Moulthrop, Alexander Mouton, Jason Nelson, Victoria Welby, and Jody Zellen.

The exhibit is both online and offline. The offline exhibit launched
on January 15th at Austin Peay State University in Tennessee, USA. The online exhibit is available at http://www.terminalapsu.org

Electronic Literature Conference

Stop Reading

Andrew Klobucar and I have just come back from the Electronic Literature Organization conference in Vancouver WA this past weekend where 120 artists and scholars met to present and talk about electronic literature. Hosted by Dr. Dene Grigar and Dr. John Barber from the Digital Technology and Culture program at Washington State University – Vancouver, the conference offered a dizzying sense of eletronic literature’s global vibrancy with participants from Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America. As the conference organizers noted, the presentations and art works demonstrated that electronic literature (however we might define the term) is very much alive and of interest to both the pioneers and a new generation of digital remixologists. I left the conference inspired by the diversity of projects on offer and a desire to collaborate with new media artists and programmers alike.

A few of the artists that caught my attention:

Serge Bouchardon
J.R. Carpenter
Ian Hatcher
