This month, Claire has joined the I Love EPoetry project as a contributor to their resources on electronic literature. Headed by Leonardo Flores, I Love EPoetry seeks to explore the poetics of language as deployed in digital media, particularly when it engages its media in artistic and literary ways. The project covers electronic literature of all genres, technologies, and platforms, and is keen to expand its coverage of electronic literature from around the world, in all languages.
Claire’s contributions will be in the broad field of Latin American electronic literature. Her entry post has already come out, and is on the hypertext narrative, Eveline, fragmentos de una respuesta, by Argentine artist and author, Marina Zerbarini. In this entry, Claire explores how Zerbarini uses texts from James Joyce as a springboard for creating a multimedia narrative that brings together photographic images, videos, animations and sound files, and invites us to explore the nature of hypertext narrative and our embodied relationship to it as reader. You can read the full entry here.
Future posts are already in the making, covering the works of Belén Gache, Jaime Alejandro Rodríguez, and others, so keep an eye out for these in the coming weeks and months. We’ll be alerting you to these as they come out from our latamcyber Twitter account, and from Claire’s Twitter account: Claire_Taylor_M
