PO.EX (Interview with Manuel Portela)

Abstract (in English): 

Manuel Portela collaborates with the PO.EX archive of Portuguese media poetry.

As a scholar, he explores reflexive qualities in reading operations. For Portela, formal analysis of the processes of reading and viewing reveal a continuity that transcends apparent differences in distribution technology: meaning, recursive as a worm, burrows into the mind on a path of words.

For a thorough discussion of these issues, see Manuel`s book "Scripting Reading Motions: The Codex and the Computer as Self-Reflexive Machines" (MIT Press, 2013, forthcoming).

Interview 2012-06-22 at ELO Morgantown.
