A Case on Generative Art: Digital Poetry

  1. 1. A Case on Generative Art: Digital Poetry Licia Calvi Paul Buchanan {calvi.l; buchanan.p}@nhtv.nl
  2. 2. Digital poetry: a challenge Digital poetry is an umbrella term Its ontological nature is still unclear blurring of the boundaries between poetry tout court and new media Digital poetry poses the issue of defining the specific function of both readers and authors Semiotic process or not? CREATE10, Edinburgh, 30 June-2 July 2010
  3. 3. Digital poetry: the questions In how far does digital poetry affect the notion of interactivity? Which approach does it offer to the design of the interaction it implies as well? What do we understand by “design”? CREATE10, Edinburgh, 30 June-2 July 2010
  4. 4. Digital poetry: the approach Choragraphy it looks at the poetry work as a whole “from interface design to interactivity, the written word and code” (Memmott, 2003) CREATE10, Edinburgh, 30 June-2 July 2010
  5. 5. Digital poetry: the methodology Analysis of a few digital poems to draw a common framework for the interpretation and understanding of generative poetry to investigate the amount of experimental composition and the kind of creativity that it allows to authors and the explorative freedom for readers to stretch and explore the limits both in the language and in the tool (i.e., the digital poem). “Labylogue” (2000) codeworks by Ted Warnell “Concatenation” (2000) CREATE10, Edinburgh, 30 June-2 July 2010

  11. 11. The discussion Find the missing link which connects code and text, deep and shallow text Find a model that accounts for the generativity and interactivity digital poetry puts on stage CREATE10, Edinburgh, 30 June-2 July 2010
  12. 12. Choragraphy SHAL DEEP AUTHOR TEXT POEM LOW TEXT READER CREATE10, Edinburgh, 30 June-2 July 2010
  13. 13. Conclusions Creativity takes place at interface level where the negotiation between author and reader is staged where the deep and the shallow text representing each of them are reconciled The “choragraphy” of this approach guarantees a holistic understanding of poem creation CREATE10, Edinburgh, 30 June-2 July 2010
