digital arts & culture 1998

Loss Pequeño Glazier will be doing a reading of "Viz Études" at the reading we plan having at the reception on Thursday evening.

"Viz Études" is a series of performances that present a reading and projection of a number of visual, kinetic, text, and Java-based compositions for electronic space, works which mine the more pliant possibilities of e-poetry and explore the material dimensions of writing in electronic space through the use of elements such as moving text, imbedded sound files, and Java-layered text as properties of writing. The language of "Viz Études" is one in which ideation cannot help but be colored by implications of the very vocabulary of the electronic possibilities for new writing. An installation of "Viz Études" for magnetic media was included in the "The Next Word" Exhibit at the Neuberger Museum at SUNY Purchase, Fall, 1998. This performance is part of a series, individual iterations of which have been performed in San Francisco, New York, Washington DC, London, Buffalo, and, a week before its performance here, in Mexico City.
