Fri May 4 at 7:00 PM, Tisch School of the Arts (Common room)

An evening of poetry, performance, and experimental text design from ITP’s Reading and Writing Electronic Text (a class that I teach at NYU).
Friday, May 4th, 2012
721 Broadway, New York, NY
Ground floor (Common room)

Over the course of Spring semester, eighteen NYU students have engaged in intense electro-textual experiments: composing, mangling, generating and remixing electronic text using the Python programming language. For one night only, these students will gather to present and perform their experiments to the general public.

What to expect: innovative poetic forms, bizarre textual interfaces, generative satire, advanced natural language processing techniques, and more!

Reading and Writing Electronic Text is a course offered at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunication Program. The course is an introduction to both the Python programming language and contemporary techniques in electronic literature. See the syllabus and examples of student work here.

Here's a round-up of performances from last year's class.

Finally, a meetup I can say that I will absolutely, positively be attending. Who's in?

Oh, I want to make it, but I don't finish work until close to start time. Drat!

Aww, Greg, that's a bummer. Next time, yeah?

Is there really a start time? (I work until 6:45 Friday.)
