Q&A with J.R. Carpenter and Andy Campbell (photo Leonardo Flores – merci)

Recently I did 2 talks at eloCork.
The first #PEAE (Participatif Ethology in Artificial Environments) was about my relation to electronic literature and my struggles defining my artworks.
In the second Diffractive Reading in the Reading Club, I describe how I became to consider the Reading Club as an example of a diffractive reading practice.

a pretty pathetic

On the 20th of June 2019 at 3:30pm (UTC+01:00) during my talk with/in languages – a pretty pathetic @ the Language INTER Networks conference in Lancaster, I danced to Lou Sarabadzic‘s reading of an extract of Hito Steyerl’s International Disco Latin.
The text of my talk with/in languages – a pretty pathetic is now available in ZeTMaG numéro 4.2 Langu(ag)e(s)-(E)Space(s).

alienated

Ours Lingages. The internet is my language mother. I speak with a voice that’s not my own, I speak in other voices, not my voice. We are all e-strangers, all nomads that use globish bastard languages. We are the alienated translated (wo)men in-between code and emotion, in-between our wish to be visible and our longing for intimacy. L’entre-deux = void. Can’t we be “with” instead?
Translation is a joy as long as you can accept the imperfections of the result, are willing to learn, to spend time, to pay attention, to take risks and to accept your own incompleteness and glitches. Translation is always failing, faulty, it’s a source for confusion … and discovery. It opens a third language; another in-between, and then a fourth and … Better take nothing for granted and play with it. Be the one not looking at what something is, but at what something can do.
You have to accept (a FEW times). A few times. New language. Let’s try to be “with”.

Je ne m’exprime pas sur qu’est-ce que c’est la poésie électronique, numérique etc. Vous êtes écrivains, poètes, étudiants intéressées. Ça me suffit, vous écrirez à partir de votre idée de la poésie. Et puisque vous écrirai ensemble dans / avec un même apparatus nous aurons un mélange d’approches, un métissage, une hybridation. Vous ne serez pas le seul auteur. Il faut inventer des nouvelles langages (plusieurs fois) pour comprendre les possibilités et la radicalité de l’écriture en ligne tel que je la comprends. Extrait du texte de préparation d’Annie Abrahams.

Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 3

Reading Club (2013 – ….) included in
Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 3.

The result is a material representation of the reader’s presence in the text. As the readers type, cut and paste, delete, format, and transform the text, the text becomes a conversational space in which read not just the text but each other’s interventions, guessing each other’s goals as they collaborate, riff, joust, and subvert each other.

February 2016, Cambridge, Massachusetts: Electronic Literature Organization, ISSN: 1932-2016.
Editors : Stephanie Boluk, Jacob Garbe, Anastasia Salter, and Leonardo Flores.

Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 3. 1.0 – Launched February 18, 2016. The core ELC3, complete with works and editorial commentary, launched at the “Matter of Bits” exhibition at Rutgers University Camden. This first iteration is online-only and links to live versions of works currently available on the web, whenever possible.
