Short biography: 

Ottar Ormstad has published several books of concrete poetry. He has presented video-poems and exhibited darkroom-produced photography, and also graphic art based on his concrete poetry.
In 2009, he produced his first video called ‘LYMS’ which is screened in 15 countries, including e-poetry2009 in Barcelona and the Zebra Film Poetry Festival in Berlin 2010.
The video ‘when’ premiered at e-poetry2011 in Buffalo, New York, and among other places has been screened in Paris, Marseille, and Toulouse. Ormstad’s web-poem ‘svevedikt’ (2006) was selected for the “ELMCIP Anthology of European Electronic Literature” (2012).
In an article titled ‘driving down the road of continuity?’ published in Dichtung Digital 42, Ormstad reflects upon his artistic practices from book publications, exhibitions, to digital concrete poetry.
The gallery of Norwegian graphic artists in Oslo (Galleri norske grafikere) presented a solo-exhibition of visual poetry based on the film "when" by Ormstad in October 2013.
