Announcing the ELC3

August 5, 2014 in Calls, ELO

Call for Submissions

The Electronic Literature Organization (ELO) is now seeking submissions and nominations for Volume 3 of the Electronic Literature Collection. ELO was founded in 1999 and has released two collections, in 2006 and 2011The third volume is slated for publication in 2016 and will continue to archive outstanding examples of electronic literature from an international community of practitioners. The goal of this volume is to represent the current state of electronic literature and to archive historically significant works from earlier generations.

From hypertext and kinetic poetry to ARGs and Twitter bots, we invite submissions from a wide range of fields. Electronic literature (or e-lit) thrives at the intersection of digital media and textuality. ELO offers a broad definition of e-lit as “works with important literary aspects that take advantage of the capabilities and contexts provided by the stand-alone or networked computer” (http://eliterature.org/what-is-e-lit/). For examples of the range of writing previously collected, Volume 1 and 2 are available at http://collection.eliterature.org. These earlier volumes were published under a Creative Commons license, distributed in physical storage media, and available open-access through a website. The ELC3 will follow a similar format.

Please submit your works and nominations online using this form, also embedded below.  You may contact the editorial collective directly at: elcvol3 at g mail.

Entries in any language are welcome.

ELO 2013 Paris: Call for Artistic Proposals (2/18, 2/23-26/13)

January 10, 2013 in Calls, ELO, Events

Chercher le texte: call for expressions of artistic interest

Event website: http://www.chercherletexte.org

The “chercher le texte” event deals with literary issues and text-oriented multimedia practices on digital devices: digital books, texts generated or animated through programming, fiction hypertexts, “manipulable”, playable works, or on the contrary works whose very program embraces literariness. The considered devices range from computers to mobile devices, including social networks. They can be used in various contexts: installations, performances, personal devices designed for digital reading. These contexts range from solo reading to collaborative or participative reading.

This event will represent an opportunity to showcase young artists and bring together two worlds, which otherwise barely come into contact with one another: that of the experimental digital literature forms deriving from the second half of the 20th century avant-garde movements and that of the digital writings, as used by authors coming from the book world and who have taken over the digital technologies, namely blogs and e-books.

In this context, the Musique et Informatique de Marseille (MIM) laboratory associates with team Écritures Numériques from Paris 8 Paragraphe laboratory, the digital literature European network Digital Digital Digital Littérature (DDDL), the Electronic Literature Organization (ELO), the Bibliothèque Publique d’Information (BPI), the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (BNF), the Cube, the Labex Art-H2H coordinated by Paris 8 and the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (EnsAD) to organize the following events:

-          An online virtual gallery on the DDDL network website.

-          Four events consisting of performances and projections of works, from September 23 to 26, 2013, in the small room of the Centre Pompidou, the big auditorium of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France and the Cube amphitheater.

-          A six-week exhibition on “digital literatures from the past and future” in the BNF lab room of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, which will be launched on September 24, 2013. This exhibition will feature the virtual gallery and a selection of digital literary works with emphasis on the works designed for touch-pads and e-readers. No installation is possible.

Artists, especially young ones, are invited to propose one or several work(s) for one or more of these devices.

Please send your proposals to work@chercherletexte.org before February 18. If you wish to propose several works, please do it in a single document and make sure you detail the nature of each proposal on at least one distinct page (gallery, performance, exhibition). Please write it in English or French in pdf format and include a short biography stating the age of the artist and the following information about each device: Read the rest of this entry →
