Digital Poemevents: Leaved Life and Spatiotemporal Form
Responsible organisation
2006 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Using Anne Frances Wysocki’s online multimedia kinetic work Leaved Life as an example, I examine the spatiotemporal specificities of digital poetry. Like a quickly growing number of similar digital poems, Leaved Life foregrounds the materiality of its poetic and visual language as well as the temporal aspects of reading. The reader meets a visually dense and kinetically nervous surface that she / he has to explore in very specific ways in order to make sense of this sensuous and nostalgic poetic text. I argue that in order to read works such as Leaved Life a detailed understanding of their digitally mediated construction (in conjunction with images, sounds, and words) is required which in turn requires a rethinking of critical terms. Since the digital poem exists both as an object and an event, I argue that we are faced with a new convergent form that I propose to call “poemevent.”
