On Wednesday 10 June, the Latin(o) American Digital Art project will be holding an integrated scholarly-artistic panel at the E-Poetry Festival, the largest and longest-running international festival dedicated to digital poetry.
Entitled ‘Digital Poetics and Digital Artefacts: Dialogues Across Media in Latin America’, our panel brings together the work of scholars and practitioners within the digital realm in Latin America who research on, or work with, digital technologies in poetic or artistic practice.
Combining presentations by the artists Brian Mackern and Marina Zerbarini with papers by the scholars Jordana Blejmar, Thea Pitman, and Claire Taylor, the panel interweaves critical study with artistic practice
Themes and practices to be discussed in the panel include:
location and mapping in the digital realm; poetic experimentation in the digital age;
soundtoys and found footage/objects in digital artist and poetic practice;
digital memories and online commemorations;
the poetics of self and belonging online.
The panel will also provide a unique opportunity to showcase Brian Mackern’s latest work, Port Interfaces (2014- ), a work which has, to date, been exhibited only in Liverpool (UK), and has yet to be premiered in Latin America.
