Short description: 

This gathering was organized by Thom Swiss and Dee Morris. The conference focused on poetry composed for digital environments, explored cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural accounts of this work in the broader context of contemporary arts and culture.  The aims:

  • to look at the possibilities for poetry offered by the electronic convergence of words, images and sound
  • highlight the changing contexts in which literature is produced as a result of the electronic word
  • examine emergent reading possibilities and strategies
  • consider some of the new forms of distribution and archiving made possible by the Web.

The website comes along with an online gallery.
