Electronic Literature

Improvising Consciousness.

For about forty years, writer/artists have been using the computer as a medium for creating poetic, fictional and dramatic literary experiences. 

Many different kinds of both mainstream and experimental work fit under the umbrella of Electronic Literature: Digital Poetry, Poetry Installation, Interactive Story, Games, Intermedia Performance, Location-based Media, Virtual Reality, and Escape Rooms. Practitioners variously focus on visuals, writing, coding, sound. Delivery systems are flexible and diverse: from mobile phone app to physical installation to augmented reality. DMS faculty are deeply engaged with this expanding and morphing territory.
