  8. Afsnit P

    Afsnit P is a Danish site for visual literature and intermedia art that has been active since 1999 (until 2011). The Danish word afsnit means section or paragraph, and the p stands for poetry, referring to both poesis and pictura according to its three editors, Christian Yde Frostholm, Karen Wagner, and Charlotte Hansen. Afsnit P is described as a cross between a virtual gallery and journal. It contains a blog, which features information about exhibitions, events, recent publications, and a virtual gallery which showcases creative work. In addition, several essays about visual and digital poetry and art have been published on the site. There is also an extensive link library. While there is a natural emphasis on Nordic artists and events, the content is international and the site functions as a portal for Nordic audiences to experimental, visual writing as an international phenomenon. Afsnit P is mainly in Danish with a smaller English section.

  9. Beyond the Screen: Transformations of Literary Structures, Interfaces and Genres

    While literature in computer-based and networked media has so far been experienced by looking at the computer screen and by using keyboard and mouse, nowadays human-machine interactions are organized by considerably more complex interfaces. Consequently, this book focuses on literary processes in interactive installations, locative narratives and immersive environments, in which active engagement and bodily interaction is required from the reader to perceive the literary text. The contributions from internationally renowned scholars analyze how literary structures, interfaces and genres change, and how transitory aesthetic experiences can be documented, archived and edited.
