The (Vis)poetics of Jim Andrews: 'A Pen'

Critical Writing
Record Status: 
Abstract (in English): 

"A Pen" is a Letterist exploration of text as a tool for writing, rather than as the result of writing. It is about the interpenetration of code and language in programmable media to imbue letters and words with behaviors and allowing poems to emerge from these. It is about creating tools for readers to become involved in the process of shaping the poems that arise from these processes. It is the latest expression of Jim Andrews' exploration of the visual characteristics of written language, and the capabilities of computers to both render and reinvent statuesque letters as dancing signifiers.
