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.
