Art and Poetry Between the Electronic and the Visual

e and eye: art Art and Poetry Between the Electronic and the Visual :: Led by Penny Florence, Tim Mathews and John Cayley :: Monday 13 November 2006, 18.30–20.00.

Modern art has had a close historical relationship with poetry and performance since its formation. Electronic poetry has developed a strong element of performance, an implicit demand for some form of exhibition. This series of events explores the relationship between the visual, the poetic and the electronic in art. The sessions begin with a conversation in which invited speakers discuss issues relevant to the Collection and to electronic and visual poetry. This is followed by a short performance or reading of an electronic poem, and an open discussion. Laptop computers with video projection showing interactive electronic works are also placed within the galleries.

The speakers are theorists and practitioners in a variety of media and virtual curators, and include John Aiken, Patrick Burgaud, John Cayley, Penny Florence, Elizabeth James, Mark Leahy, Tim Mathews, Brigid McLeer, Sharon Morris and TNWK (Kirsten Lavers and cris cheek).

Virtual presence practitioners / curators / theorists: Sandy Baldwin, N Katherine Hayles, Camille Utterback, Talan Memmott, Rita Raley, David Rokeby, Alan Sondheim, Noah Wardrip-Fruin.

There is an e and eye blog at where further information is given. Members of the audience and participants can post comments and discuss the talks.

Organised by Penny Florence and Tim Mathews, with John Cayley.
