the digital page

June 27, 2022

It has been a long time since we mentioned the Electronic Literature Organization (ELO) and even longer since ELO began investigating literature produced for the digital medium. Based at Washington State University Vancouver, Electronic Literature Organization pursues an ambitious program of scholarly and artistic projects, including an annual conference and a variety of publications.

Each edition of the Electronic Literature Collection (there are now four volumes) explores material created specifically for the digital medium. The range of approaches, styles, and subjects is dazzling (see Volume 4 filters to get a sense of this).

In Collection Volume 4, clicking on a project name takes you to a page where the project is introduced (metadata, author’s bio and artistic statement, editorial statement). From there, an ACCESS THE WORK button takes you to a video introduction to the project and, from there, another click takes you to the author’s WORK WEBSITE (and occasionally options to travel elsewhere).

It is quite a remarkable collection and a wide skew from poetry printed in black ink on white paper.
