Dressage #7

Description (in English): 

Claude Maillard and Tibor Papp’s “Dressage no. 7” is glaring example of anthropophagic inflection in early digital poetry. The authors, continuing to use the same language and themes established in previous editions of Alire, cast familiar words and phrases amidst a wider span of new visual contexts. Alternating graphical pages, verbal pages, and pages that incorporate both propel the narrative. Works in Maillard and Papp’s “Dressage” series address the diminishing status of civil liberties in general, inscribing their views in a new media format that revives the aesthetics of an earlier era with new purpose.
