Après avoir cherché le texte

During Chercher Le Texte, a conference held in Paris in October, an initiative of ELO (Electronic Literature Organisation), some of the ideas that are (latently) present in the workgroup of Algolit, were described and confirmed. This post is a subjective reading of several conferences I attended, meant as an invitation for discussions and exchanges. » Read the rest of this entry «

Languages come & go, but algorithms stand the test of time

Ceci est un reflet du rapport collectif qui devrait être fait par le secrétaire défénitivement provisoire Etherpad, lors de la 2e rencontre d’Algolit du 27 au 29 mai 2013 au Belouvrage à Nantes, qui était focalisé sur le travail d’Oulipo.
Après une balade organisée par Nicolas Malevé dans les spirales de l’histoire de l’algoritme, on s’est plongé dans le sofa avec notre bibliographie oulipienne, on a analysé de près quelques recettes et finalement, on a décidé d’essayer de vider le poulet de façon digitale. Finalement, on a constaté que la recette des rencontres Oulipiennes nous pourrait servir aussi. » Read the rest of this entry «

Workshop i-literature

December 12th, 2012 § 2 comments § permalink

From 8th till 10th October I invited five artists for a workshop around i-literature in Constant Variable: Catherine Lenoble, Olivier Heinry, Stéphanie Vilayphiou and Nicolas Malevé.

All of us are hybrid artists with a special interest in literature. We knew bits and pieces of each others’ work, but I was curious to see what common grounds we would find in our approaches towards electronic literature, the experiences, the likes and the dislikes. It was great to be able to go into depth throughout the presentations of our work.

Five different aspects of interesting i-literature experiences came out of this encounter: intertextuality, distributed works, the challenge of accessibility and licenses, collaborative processes, working with algorithms and parameters. Of course, sometimes a work contains more than one aspect at the same time. Below you find the list, with for each aspect concrete examples of the works that were presented.
As a result of this workshop we set up the mailinglist Algolit in order to continue to share and discuss thoughts about i-literature. If you’re interested to join, please https://listes.domainepublic.net/listinfo/algolit
At the end of 2013 we plan to make a publication based on the content of this mailinglist.

This workshop was possible thanks to the support of the Vlaamse Gemeenschapscommissie.
