Abstract [sv]

The article presents in brief the author’s doctoral thesis on Anglo-American digital poetry and poetics. Within the heterogeneous field of digital poetry, the author focused on three aesthetic and poetic practices which she names poemevents, cinematographic poetry and visual noise poetry. The article deals with the latter two. Digital literary materiality is discussed following N. Katherine Hayles’s articulation: “the materiality of an embodied text is the interaction of its physical characteristics with its signifying strategies” and cinematographic poetry and visual noise poetry can both be seen as engaging different aspects of digital physical properties with different signifying strategies (influenced by popular cultural forms as well as historical art and literary genres). Cinematographic poems rely on montages of word, image, and sound to generate poems, which triggers a cinematic sense of poetry reading and writing in movement. “Visual noise” is what the author calls a phenomenon of creating visually and typographically dense poems in digital form. Their dominant aesthetic technique is generated by a tactilely responsive surface in combination with visual excess which requires an embodied engagement from the reader/user in order for a reading to take place. In relation to Mark Hansen’s understanding of digitally mediated artworks as based in “a haptic aesthetic rooted in embodied affectivity,” the author argues that digital poetic works, too, should be viewed as based in an embodied experience that requires more than ocular attention from their audience. Finally, since digital poetic works combine texts, images, sounds and movement, and engage meta-critical questions about materiality and media, the author posits that the study of these works help us understand socio-economic, technical and cultural implications for creative cultural practice in the digital age.
