Questions about TOC and Electronic Literature


How does this work explore constraint in terms of generating meaning?

How does the image use expand the meaning of the text or does it constrain it?

Does time feel constrained due to the duration of particular sections?

How might this work become more interactive? How would this change it’s current strategies?

Do you think the work makes you “Feel” time?

• Electronic Literature:

“work with an important literary aspect that takes advantage of the capabilities and contexts provided by the stand-alone or networked computer.”

• Where are we now? What new approaches would you like to see in terms of contemporary Electronic Literature be discussed?

• What relation does installation art have to such a definition? How do we parse the difference between literary and poetic work and media art or does this distinction not matter?

• How might location be leveled in terms of digital literary production?

• Given the quixotic nature of the digital form, will digital literature be around in 500 years?
