“We Have Always Been Digital,” the Show I Curated of Interactive Works and Performance of Electronic Lit and Poetry
In We Have Never Been Modern , Bruno Latour argues that modern civilization has secularized rituals of purification to create boundaries between “nature” and “culture,” “human” and “thing,” even as we construct hybrid systems that mix politics, art, technology, and biology. Similarly, language participates in and perpetuates divisions even as it performs “the work of translation.” Electronic literature is uniquely situated to explore and reveal this. Although, like conventional literature, it offer users the opportunity to develop a critical awareness through content, electronic literature also reveals through form and process—by making manifest what Donna Haraway calls, “the translation of the world into a problem of coding”.

Holly Melgard | Elective Affinities
What if books didn’t take so long to come out? What if you could make them and immediately publish and distribute those books? What if no financial investment, projectable print run, or even fact-checked information were required to put a book into circulation? Books define, so they can’t commit crimes like counterfeit, extortion and perjury. —Oh, wait, they can! It’s called the internet. But that’s the problem, right?

How to Understand Your Computer - The New Yorker
You may not understand, or even want to learn, anything about code, but code is learning more about you every day; it understands you in ways that you don’t quite understand yourself, even as it changes what it understands. It may not be legible to you, but you—you lucrative mine of extractable and transferable data—are legible to it. Code is not like poetry, which makes nothing happen. “Code moves,” as Chandra puts it, in the final pages of his book. “It changes the world.”

Reading as information control (Tan Lin interview, 2014)
"literature is an operation. its general aim is to function like the mass media. " "In a world that we increasingly configure or visualize not with but as data, is there much difference between a couplet and a bullet point? ... the edges of a new literary field look a lot like info management systems"

Ashbery on Gertrude Stein
In addition, the almost physical pain with which we strive to accompany the evolving thought of one of James's or Gertrude Stein's characters is perhaps a counterpart of the painful continual projection of the individual into life. As in life, perseverance has its rewards -- moments when we emerge suddenly on a high plateau with a view of the whole distance we have come..... It is for moments like this that one perseveres in this difficult poem, moments which would be less beautiful and meaningful if the rest did not exist, for we have fought side by side with the author in her struggle to achieve them.

Vol. 1 Brooklyn | Internet Poetry & the Image Macro: A Conversation with Michael Hessel-Mial
Image macros really hinge on how visual media can be poetry – it’s why you don’t have to have an art degree to do it. Not all of the best macros are going to have a lot of polish, anymore than the best poems are going to be in an ‘elevated diction’ or something.

First Stanford code poetry slam reveals the literary side of computer code
Wu noted that when she was typing the code most people didn't know what she was doing. "They were probably confused and curious. But when I executed the poem, the program interpreted the code and they could hear words," she said, adding that her presentation "gave voice to the code." "The code itself had its own synthesized voice, and its own poetics of computer code and singsong spoken word," Wu said. One of the contenders showed a poem that was "misread" by the computer. "There was a bug in his poem, but more interestingly, there was the notion of a correct interpretation which is somewhat unique to computer code. Compared to human language, code generally has few interpretations or, in most cases, just one," Wu said.

The Rejection of Closure by Lyn Hejinian
I can only begin a posteriori, by perceiving the world as vast and over­whelming; each moment stands under an enormous vertical and horizontal pressure of information, potent with ambiguity, meaning-full, unfixed, and certainly incomplete. What saves this from becoming a vast undifferentiated mass of data and situation is one’s ability to make distinctions. The open text is one which both acknowledges the vastness of the world and is formally differentiating. We delight in our sensuous involvement with the materials of language, we long to join words to the world—to close the gap between ourselves and things—and we suffer from doubt and anxiety because of our in­ability to do so. Yet the incapacity of language to match the world permits us to distinguish our ideas and ourselves from the world and things in it from each other. The undifferentiated is one mass, the dif­ferentiated is multiple. The (unimaginable) complete text, the text that contains everything, would in fact be a cl...

code {poems}
Code can speak literature, logic, maths. It contains different layers of abstraction and it links them to the physical world of processors and memory chips. All these resources can contribute in expanding the boundaries of contemporary poetry by using code as a new language. Code to speak about life or death, love or hate. Code meant to be read, not run.

‘Unlike’: Forms of Refusal in Poetry on the Internet – Pool
poetry interrupts, derails, shifts; it does not reinforce... [what] are the implications of poetry’s choice of continuing established traditions or of refusing them, in light of a new strand of internet-based poetry that has emerged over the past half-decade or so. The possibilities for reversing this situation afforded by the Internet are obvious and probably do not need restating. [...] The power and innovation of this poetry stems from this moment of ambivalence occurring on all levels of its practice – it feels something like a pause, a hesitation hanging in the air after a voice is interrupted. PURPOSE: If we can say that in poetry the genuine tradition is anti-tradition, and that continual overthrowing of entrenched styles is desirable, then it is worth looking at exactly what form of interruption this new strand of poetry proliferating on the internet takes, and how valid it is in it positing itself as alternative writing.

erasure poetics
One of the characteristics of erasure poetics that I’m most drawn to is its method of multiplicity; rather than nullifying or “cancelling out” meanings, erasure only activates other ways of engaged reading. Jen Bervin’s silent contribution, a recipe for erasing powder, speaks to the tangible markings of erasure, its visibility of traces. Taken from Hiscox’s and Sloane’s Fortunes in Formulas for Home, Farm and Workshop (1949), one creates erasures by “rubbing [the erasing powder onto paper] very lightly with a clean linen rag. . . the spot or the writing will disappear at once.” Although erasure is defined in such severe terms—the OED enacts the term, “obliteration”—its performance is one of tracing; not “disappearance” in the sense and completion of vanishing, but in the perpetual enactment of the vanishing. Tracks and remnants. While reading through contributors’ pieces for this issue of Evening Will Come, erasure also became a violent gesture; a map of potential; intervention; an ...

A Walkthrough of Total Walkthrough | Jacket2
Crawford is one of the best artists I know of who can speak to the relationship between poetry and algorithm: “I guess in the history of poetry we've always called these 'forms.' For example here's the algorithm for a villanelle: A1bA2 abA1 abA2 abA1 abA2 abA1A2. With something like ‘Link,’ the notion of algorithm seems much more transparent, as they are literally instructions for the computer to follow but if we are to take the definition of an algorithm as basically the rules that govern something, then most of poetry's history is highly algorithmic.”

WALT WHITMAN—SONG OF MYSELF Section 8 | IWP WhitmanWeb
The impassive stones that receive and return so many echoes,
What groans of over-fed or half-starv'd who fall sunstruck or in fits,
What exclamations of women taken suddenly who hurry home and give birth to babes,
What living and buried speech is always vibrating here, what howls restrain'd by decorum,
Arrests of criminals, slights, adulterous offers made, acceptances, rejections with convex lips,
I mind them or the show or resonance of them—I come and I depart.

Poetry Makes You Weird - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education
Shelley articulates literature's invigorating disorientation: "Poetry lifts the veil from the hidden beauty of the world, and makes familiar objects be as if they were not familiar." But the result of that alienation is not only an aesthetic rush; it is also a moral life. In shocking us into awareness, poetry urges us to relate to the world in fresh ways. The problem is, How do I connect my own mind, relatively familiar, with what is before me, enticingly bizarre?

Shelley answers: Imagine what it's like to be what you perceive. To accomplish that connection requires "a going out of our nature, and an identification of ourselves with the beautiful which exists in thought, action, or person, not our own." I take that to mean that the more distinctly we imagine the plight of another, the more empathy we feel, and the more beauty we appreciate.

Conceptual Poetry - Stein / Cage / Goldsmith
Christian Bok has written:
Some of the modernist notions of the both accidental and the procedual have begun increasingly to inform the current writing, by poets who find inspiration in the principles of conceptual art. Such poets have beun to use stolen texts, random words, forced rules, boring ideas, and ever cyborg tools, in order to mobilize a variety of anti-experessive, anti-discursive stratergies that erase any idiosyncratic demonstration of ‘lyric style’. Such activity has become one of the most radical, if not one the most popular, limit-cases of the avant-garde at the advent of the millennium.

The Poethical Wager
It makes much more sense to conceive of agency in the context of sustained projects, during the course of which many swerves may occur but which one guides with as much responsible awareness as possible. I count on the form of the essay—as urgent and aesthetically aware thought experiment—to undertake a particular kind of inquiry that is neither poetry nor philosophy but a mix of logics, dislogics, intuition, revulsion, wonder.

Weird Poems essay by Jack Anders (Published online 2005 – Guest edited by Gabriel Gudding) « MiPOesias
The situation of poetry itself is very weird today. We live in the generation in which poetry is coming to terms with the internet. Poetic textuality is entering the internet. What the internet means is that more text, more writing, is simultaneously displayed and preserved than at any prior time in human history. There is more writing in existence, saved in the virtually limitless storage capacity of servers in cyberspace, than at any prior time. It is, in one sense, a richness, a plenitude. But there is a mysterious sense of ghostly loss that goes with it. For the presence of so much writing, so much sheer volume of poetry, out there in cyberspace, foregrounds the question for us, for you or me, the individual self, the individual reader: what is it for? How does one use it? What does it mean?

Exhibits - CARL ANDRE "POEMS"
Although Carl Andre’s Minimalist sculptures have been exhibited internationally for well over forty years, his poetry remains less well-known. In fact, it has often been regarded by commentators as merely one of the artist’s subsidiary interests, and thus of only marginal relevance to his sculpture. Yet there is a strong case to be made that his beginnings as a creative artist were just as much based in literature and poetry as they were in the visual and plastic arts. More importantly, we might also suggest that for Andre the intense interrogation of text and words, which is so characteristic of the poetry, is an activity which runs parallel to his work as a sculptor. The two endeavours feed and support one another in important ways.

Ron Silliiman on THE MS OF MY KIN by Janet Holmes
"I think we very seldom acknowledge just how little of literature is truly new. Which is why when something does pop up that seems genuinely to expand the field of writing – flarf is the obvious case in point – it spreads like wildfire. What flarf does is take materials from the “real world” & present them in ways that are garishly anti-literary as literature. The controversial process of Google-sculpting is a minor (indeed minuscule) aspect of flarf compared with its critique of The Literary." OK my comment - what if we could start seeing writing as just a new kind of writing rather than in opposition to literature. So instead of non-literature or anti-literature, it would be a new kind of writing, not yet appropriated by (the institution of?) literature.

dickinson pinned fragments (ebr6:werner)
Freed from the forty bound fascicles, the accumulated libraries of her poetic production, and whirling confusedly around the absent center of the "book," Dickinson's (un)pinned fragments resemble the distant and disoriented migrants that do not come fully into focus and that no longer constitute a clearly delimitable constellation. [...] Fragments are "small, rickety infinitudes"; they try their chances. De-archivized, they fly to the lyric's scattered ends: the "proceedings of a birdsong," the vibration of poetry freed from the all devices.>23

Some Notes on Visual Intentionality in Emily Dickinson
Look carefully at one of Dickinson's manuscripts from the 1870's, the ones Ralph Franklin calls "careless," and you will see what gets lost in any typeface. In typography's mirror of production, words reflect only the shadow of their inception. Try to copy her calligraphy; retrace one sweeping S, a, or C, and you will know how sure her touch was/is. Shapes and letters pun on and play with each other. Messages are delivered by marks. All redundancies are cut away to recover the innocence of the eye.

Writings by Emily Dickinson: Mutilations
Where there was intelligible utterance, cacophony has been created. In the name of authority and of what is appropriate for official literary and editorial study, that cacophony was for a century by and large ignored, read over with silence even as Emily Dickinson's words had been written over with muffling tactics. Generation after generation of readers, then, reenact the work with scissors, erasers, and razor-sharp knives of the original mutilator and have done so unself-consciously. It is that that seemingly compulsive, unexamined reenactment that is of particular interest to me, and that should be something about which not only every Dickinson editor and read should be conscious but about which every reader should be conscious, for such unexamined reenactments of censorships infuse literary history and thus our sense of the objects that count as appropriately literary and how they count as appropriately literary.

Frank O'Hara provides the poetry of Mad Men
It is no accident that the show’s creator, Matthew Weiner, chose the work of O’Hara to echo his hero’s thoughts. In addition to being the most “interesting, and modern” poet at work during the early 1960s time frame of Mad Men, O’Hara was also a writer whose voice in many ways shares the show’s peculiarly American mixture of jazzy style and quiet melancholy. Like Draper, O’Hara was also a quintessential New York phenomenon, ambitious and charismatic, his life expressing that city’s contradictory energies during an era that many view as its heyday.

These days, poetry and commerce are rarely on such good speaking terms. Poetry doesn’t sell well, and poets almost never attain the celebrity that touched Moore, Robert Frost and Carl Sandburg half a century ago. If some Detroit executive got the bright idea to consult a poet for marketing advice today, one rather doubts he’d know whom to call. It’s nice to think that the two groups — poets and carmakers — might find new relevance through collaboration, but history is not encouraging.

This offers an exciting format where poets, motion graphic artists, actors and other artists can reach out to the public and show off their skills and talents. Naturally, PoetryVisualized.com allows our members to show off their creations. But we have plans that go beyond merely being an online collection of fantastic short films. Our first project will be a motion picture of the visual poetry world where we will take the best short films and put them together, with commentary, as a full length feature film. That film will be submitted to the major film festivals, sold on our web site and distributed world wide. All income from that film will be divided up among the contributing artists and PoetryVisualized.com.

Flarf is Dionysus. Conceptual Writing is Apollo : Poetry Magazine
Our immersive digital environment demands new responses from writers. What does it mean to be a poet in the Internet age? These two movements, Flarf and Conceptual Writing, each formed over the past five years, are direct investigations to that end. Identity, for one, is up for grabs. Materiality, too, comes to the fore: the quantity of words seems to have more bearing on a poem than what they mean. Fusing the avant-garde impulses of the last century with the technologies of the present, these strategies propose an expanded field for twenty-first-century poetry. This new writing is not bound exclusively between pages of a book; it continually morphs from printed page to web page, from gallery space to science lab, from social spaces of poetry readings to social spaces of blogs. It is a poetics of flux, celebrating instability and uncertainty.
