So, when was the last time you've really sat down and contemplated "typographic hyperpoetry"? Are you sure you know what it is? The web site "hyPoem" (created by Austrian artist/computer scientist/poet Joerg Piringer) is worth a look, as it's billed as "a dynamic interactive environment for typographic hyperpoetry." Basically, this new literary form -- or is it a new net art form? -- makes use of moveable text and graphics, made easy to use with digital technology, so you can create aesthetic groupings of words and characters. The result is a series of pictures worth a thousand words...or words worth a thousand pictures.
