  3. Mariusz Pisarski

    Founder and editor of Techsty - the only journal in Poland devoted exclusively to electronic literature (since 2002). Consultant and producer of several Polish e-lit works, translator of hypertext fictions by Judy Malloy, Stuart Moulthrop and Mark Amerika. Promotes electronic literature in popular press, literary circles and on the academic field. His PhD on hypertext (final stages) is an effort to bound the roots of contemporary poetics with medium specific qualities of network environments. In other words: "Roman Jakobson meets Espen Aarseth". The task in question is still much needed, after over simplifications of the nineties hypertext debate.

  7. Lexia to Perplexia

    Author description: Lexia to Perplexia is a deconstructive/grammatological examination of the "delivery machine." The text of the work falls into the gaps between theory and fiction. The work makes wide use of DHTML and JavaScript. At times its interactive features override the source text, leading to a fragmentary reading experience. In essence, the text does what it says: in that, certain theoretical attributes are not displayed as text but are incorporated into the functionality of the work. Additionally, Lexia to Perplexia explores new terms for the processes and phenomena of attachment. Terms such as "metastrophe" and "intertimacy" work as sparks within the piece and are meant to inspire further thought and exploration. There is also a play between the rigorous and the frivolous in this "exe.termination of terms." The Lexia to Perplexia interface is designed as a diagrammatic metaphor, emphasizing the local (user) and remote (server) poles of network attachment while exploring the "intertimate" hidden spaces of the process.

  9. A Four-Sided Model for Reading Hypertext Fiction

    I will not pursue the issue of a hypertextual competence (or a multimodal hypertextual competence) here. Rather I would like to take a closer look at literary hypertext and electronic literature itself, and the fact that electronic literature, just like print literature, prefigures different modes of reading. I will insist on the necessity of examining what mode of reading and what kind of responses are prefigured in hypertexts when we make conclusions about hypertext reading. I want to approach the topic by putting weight on how Megan Heyward’s Of day, of night (2002) prefigures the reader's response. The aim of this article is to explore some of the preconditions for reading Of day, of night, and to identify three modes of reading in this hypertext fiction. In addition to these three modes I will argue for a fourth mode of reading hypertext fiction. This mode can be identified in several literary hypertexts, but is less relevant for describing the preconditions for reading Heyward's text. Consequently I will make use of other work to exemplify this mode. Four modes of reading are identified and described. These are semantization, exploration, self-reflection and absorption.

  10. Hyperrhiz: New Media Cultures

    In close affiliation with Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge, a parent journal of Hyperrhiz, this site hosts experimental web-based projects. Hyperrhiz also provides a forum for the presentation of electronic installations, games, and performances through the use of archival video, photo, and text documentation. It is a peer-reviewed online journal of net art and electronic literature that is published twice yearly. The editor's interest lies "in the genres of electronic discourse, and how these formats might affect the expression of complex discourses within new media." Hyperrhiz welcomes submissions of net-ready art projects, electronic literature works, and review essays. As the journal's name suggests, works written in the spirit of Deleuzian approaches are welcomed but not required.
