we are particularly interested in concrete/visual poetry developed in video
or in computer animation.
Also requested are works which utilize verbal language, literary text,
poetry, in the electronic media, not as simple superimposition, but in a new
grammar that coniugates text, electronics and visual aspects.

4. Format: only videocassette VHS standard PAL
(we accept also files recorded on CD ROM, ONLY: short animated gif, avi,
mpeg - other files not accepted -, but they will be re-recorded on a
videocassette, for this reason works
on videocassette are preferred).

purpose
in other no-profit manifestations/festivals/presentations.

6. Information about the selected works, and about eventual itinerant
developments, or future initiatives, will be given only by the web site
Karenina.it (scroll down for the link).
