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 week Edinburgh College of Art in collaboration with New Media Scotland and University College Falmouth will host the conference “Remediating the Social” (Nov. 1-3) under the ELMCIP framework. ELMCIP is a partner of ELO in the Consortium for Electronic Literature (CEL) and has become through its Knowledge Base one of the main sources for information on e-lit in Europe (and beyond).
ELMCIP, or Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice, is a three-year collaborative research project that began in June 2010, which focuses on how creative communities of practitioners form with a transnational and transcultural context, with an implicit emphasis on electronic literature. ELMCIP’s project leader is ELO co-founder Scott Rettberg, who together with seven other partners make up the principle investigative team. See his conference presentation on ELMCIP here.
