Poetic Space

While we're at it, here's another interesting read on New Media related thingies:

"From Concrete to Digital: The Reconceptualisation of Poetic Space"
(http://tinyurl.com/y5n7e6 , 192 Kb PDF), by Anna Katharina Schaffner. This paper discusses some of Jim Andrews' work and that of Ana Maria Uribe, Marko Niemi, and Dan Waber. Both Andrews and Waber host some excellent work by themselves and others on their sites, someone oughto at least nominate these guys for something..

Anyway, in this essay A.K. Schaffner explores "the relationship between concrete and digital poetry more closely. In particular, I am going to focus on one of the main concerns of the concrete poets: the poetics of space. How did concrete poetry redefine poetic space and how are space and its parameters reconfigured once more in digital poetry in a second step? And what happens to the notion of ‘concrete’ in the web?".

Anna Katharina Schaffner teaches at the University of Edinburgh.
