EVENT

Fwd: FLORIAN CRAMER | WORDS MADE FLESH


Dates:
Tue Jul 19, 2005 00:00 - Tue Jul 19, 2005

>
>FLORIAN CRAMER | WORDS MADE FLESH, CODE, CULTURE, IMAGINATION
>
>Algorithmic instruction code can be found, centuries before the
>invention of the computer, in Latin poetry, the Kabbalah, Western
>composed music and several forms of experimental poetry from the 17th
>to the 20th century, thus forming an important, but often neglected
>historical pretext of contemporary computer arts. While these
>examples are formally simple or even primitive by contemporary
>standards, they are linked to a rich technological, artistic,
>philosophical and
>religious imagination. This extensive online publication tries to
>sketch its rich and very contradictory history from Pythagorean
>mathematics to contemporary digital art and culture, showing how the
>idea and phantasm of the word becoming flesh is both written forth
>and transformed from kabbalistic spells to computer viruses.
>
>Florian Cramer is a Berlin based writer who has published in the area
>of code poetry, comparative studies in the literature and the arts,
>modernism, text theory, literature and computing. He was Research
>Fellow at PZI, Media Design Research Jan - April 2005
>
>Available as a PDF, LaTeX or HTML file at:
>http://pzwart.wdka.hro.nl/mdr/research/fcramer/wordsmadeflesh/
