Electronic Literature
Wired Word Art
Robert Kendall
School of the Museum of Fine Arts
The World Wide Web presents many new opportunities for cross-fertilization between visual art and literature. In this workshop, you will study some of the most striking examples of online artistic and literary expression and learn how to combine word and image in your own Internet work. You can also optionally explore other electronic elements such as interactivity, animation, or audio. Possible online projects include visual poetry, hypermedia poems and narratives, visual experiments with found texts, and animated works. No previous experience in creative writing is required. Dreamweaver, Flash, Photoshop, and ImageReady will be available for your use, or you can use your own preferred software. Collaboration is welcomed.
