New Media Poetics


Leonardo Electronic Almanac

code, text, writing

The category "New Media Poetry and Poetics" includes multimedia digital works (image/text/sound) as examined through the lens of "writing," specifically any of those concerns central to poetry rather than narrative or prose:
1. reader as active participant in the "ergodic" sense,
2. the use of stochastic methods and chance procedures,
3. the complex relations between the author, reader, and computer-as-writer/reader which evolve from that interaction,
4. modes of work that foreground the digital medium (such as "codework")
5. emphasis on "poetics" of new media writing, where aesthetics intersect with politics to create dynamic attempts at social change.
