-----Oorspronkelijk bericht----- Van: Leventaki, Eleftheria [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Verzonden: dinsdag 10 januari 2006 19:44 Aan: email@example.com Onderwerp: Visual Poetry Exhibition Summer 2006 Dear Ms Spathi I represent a team of Masters Gallery Studies students at the University of Essex, in the UK. We will be putting on an exhibition of computer generated Visual Poetry in the University Gallery between 15 June and 6 July 2006. In our preliminary research for the exhibition we were happy to discover Fluxus Poetry. The exhibition aims to reveal the latest practice in Visual Poetry, and how electronic media has created new possibilities for Visual Poets, using software which allows for experimentation in digital image, animation, video, electronic sound, hypertext and holography. Through our exhibition the viewer will gain an insight into a medium of poetry where both language and pictorial elements are positioned simultaneously and function in creative tension. Not only will the tension between the visual and literary fields be explored, but also how the virtual realm can supersede the real. Because in Fluxus Poetry the build up of the poem is visible as well, we thought that a performance of Fluxus Poetry would work well as part of the education programme. Do you think this is manageable? Any of your initial thoughts would be appreciated I very much look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
