Title: The Iowa Review Web v9n2

URL: http://research-intermedia.art.uiowa.edu/tirw/vol9n2/

Description: The Iowa Review Web’s issue on “Instruments and Playable Text” (published in July 2008, guest edited by Stuart Moulthroup) features seven poetic and narrative works by six authors concerned with writing at the level of interface and code. The featured works (by Judy Malloy, John Cayley, Nick Montfort, Shawn Rider, Elizabeth Knipe, and the editor himself) all explore operations of permutation, chance, and remixing prompted by the reader’s actions. These programmed digital works invite readers to engage in the (literary) play indeed, reading and play in these texts are inseparable. Readerly actions include clicking on images and texts in Malloy’s Concerto for Narrative Data to invoke voices and texts to appear in various formations and juxtapositions. In Nick Montfort’s The Purpling, color-coding and clickable text chunks cause the poem to gradually change into different texts. John Cayley’s riverIsland employs navigation via images, via clickable icons, or by dragging QuickTime images, to access 32 poems reflecting on nature, translation, and language. Both Elizabeth Knipe’s activeReader and Shawn Rider’s two works, So Random and PiTP, invite the reader to enter texts of their own. Finally, Moulthrop’s polyphonic Under Language mixes written text with spoken words and sounds as the reader clicks on the interface’s icons and texts. In this work, as in Cayley's riverIsland, sounds and spoken words also engage the reader as a listener. Different kinds of play, interaction, and participation are juxtaposed with the more standard ways of intellectually engaging with a literary work. Along with the works, The Iowa Review Web issue includes an editor’s introduction and statements by many of the featured artists/authors. Entry drafted by: Maria Engberg

Title: Epímone

URL: http://www.epimone.net/

Description: A collection of e-poetry and visual art gathered from 2002 until 2004. The featured works are born-digital, using software and programming to create an interface where poetry and new media come together. Through such integrations of image, sound, and text, Calvo and Valdeolmillos wish to stress the idea of poetics as a form of "re-creation." In this sense, they offer an electronic materialisation of the rhetoric figure that implies the repitition of the same: Epimone. Entry drafted by: Patricia Tomaszek

Title: The Progressive Dinner Party

URL: http://www.heelstone.com/meridian/templates/Dinner/dinner1.htm

Description: As part of the online journal Riding the Meridian, The Progressive Dinner Party invites the reader to explore thirty-nine online works by women as part of a culinary reading journey through eight different countries and four continents: Cocktails from Australia, Hors d’oeuvres from Europe, Salad from Canada, Fish from the Coasts, Entrée from the US Heartland, Dessert from the Tropics and Brandy and Coffee from New York. The website offers these tempting culinary trajectories for a transnational hypertextual and hypermedial reading experience (playing on the double-meaning of ‘menu’), as well as takes the reader through a hypertextual world map and to a virtual table, which all become an indexical transit zone for a computer-based reading journey from one electronic region of the world to another. A commentary on the collection is provided by N. Katherine Hayles and Talan Memmott. Entry drafted by: Martina Pfeiler
