The Amme Talks is a conversation between poet and machine. In 2003, poet Ulf Stolterfoht and a chatbot named Amme (which means “wet nurse” in German) met in Berlin. For one week, Stolterfoht interrogated Amme: not just a chatbot, actually, but a steel-and-glass construction with a computer interface, which is connected to a glass of milk, a robotic arm that tips over the glass, and a tube that releases water, as if urinating. Stolterfoht asked Amme—the creation of artist Peter Dittmer—about the nature of authorship and the agency of language; he intended to turn the answers into an essay on poetics. ...

PublisherAna Maria Uribe1997
The component parts included here—four animated GIFs and an SWF—are not to be understood as independent works, but are to be combined in a browser to produce Ana Maria Uribe’s 1997 poem “Angeles en bandana (A Flock of Angels).” The poem arranges fifteen Garamond “T” characters in the form of an upside down triangle and animates them with out-of-sync bevels and inner glows. While this animation loops, so does a short piece of metallic-sounding audio titled “humhum.swf.” This and other Uribe anipoems are online thanks to Vispo. This title was included in Library Stack as part of the collection Open Font ...

Publishere-flux2021
We have never completely understood poetry. As a contemporary art publication, there’s no shortage of affection, admiration, or affinity for poetry, and e-flux journal has certainly published a few memorable poems over the years. But it always felt like a stroke of luck or a gift from the ether when someone brilliant would send us a poem. You won’t be surprised that this didn’t happen often. But now is the time to change that, and we’re honored to welcome Simone White as e-flux journal’s first ever poetry editor. Simone is the author of the collections or, on being the other ...

If there is one thing that deserves to be called “genuine internet literature,” then it is user generated erotica. Besides fan fiction, no other textual genre has thrived on the absence of editorial and moral oversight as much as written porn. Produced by millions of mostly anonymous amateur writers for no pay whatsoever, and harking back to the earliest days of the usenet, there is little that represents the spirit of the web more truthfully. For Erotica, I used Kimono to scrape one of the largest repositories of amateur erotic writing, literotica.com, in its entirety (10 million words, 52,000 lemmata). Removing all words that a Python script ...

PublisherOpen File2013
Three separate publications linked in format and style, for three events around the UK. Taking on themes of digital distribtion and virtual cultures, the third series of Open File events took place in three venues across the UK: Grand Union, Birmingham, ICA, London and Spike Island, Bristol. Hashfail was the first in a series of three nationwide events investigating the distribution and production of art via virtual and digital platforms through sound, performance and digital media. Hashfail coincided with (On) Accordance, a project by or-bits.com and Grand Union. A Hashfail occurs when ‘seeded’ files have become corrupt and therefore certain ‘bits’ of data cannot be received. ...

Pond Type transforms the QWERTY keyboard into a hauntingly beautiful musical instrument for digital poetry. Inspired by Brazilian concrete poet Augusto de Campos’s “Pulsar,” the artists Angela Detanico and Rafael Lain designed a ripple typeface for an exhibition of the poet’s work for the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts. For The Download, they combined the typeface with sound to create an interactive version of Pond Type. After selecting any text or poem, the viewer is instructed to type slowly and wait for each word to vanish before typing the next. By deliberately slowing down the urge to type quickly, the artists ...

I am standing outside the door of some other. I am writing a letter. I am writing many. I am looking to pass through. I find a device on the ground called a transducer and activate it. It’s a signaling device that converts energy from one form to another. Common examples are microphones, loudspeakers, thermometers, various types of sensors and antenna. The humble camera is my apparatus for transduction, an instrument often underestimated for its ability to act as a medium through which any and all worlds can travel. Entire subjectivities can undergo reprocessing through this spirit act. The subjects ...
