Digital Language: Poetry Beyond the Printed Page

TIME: 7:00-9:00 pm
VENUE: North 181, Massachusetts College of Art, 621 Huntington Avenue,
[Ask the security guard at the main desk in the Tower Building how to get

Immersed as we are in digital media, we often overlook the centrality of
written language in our experience of the world -- not only as the 'content'
of digital media, but also in the processes that facilitate it. In digital
literature, the written language of code generally operates on several
interconnected levels. Though we tend to focus on its role as a container
for displayed 'literary' content, code also exists as a static and legible
'text', in addition to its active function as instructions for the computer.
Which of these levels is most relevant to our aesthetic experience of
digital literature? Can we 'understand' any one level without exploring the
others? With these questions in mind, we will present examples from recent
work that leverages computational techniques to explore new possibilities in
digital literature; from procedural recombinations, to dynamic physical
interfaces, to three-dimensional environments for literary experimentation.
