"Presented by Turbulence.org, Upgrade! Boston, and the Electronic Literature Organization at the Boston Public Library during the Boston Cyberarts Festival. Within the digital arts there are also letters: works by writers who explore the possibilities of texts controlled by computational processes, or who write in ways that take the network as a medium (rather than a distribution mechanism). Net art includes text-, image-, and sound-based works; many e-literature works include images (moving and still) and sound. In both strains are the recurring themes of interactivity, participation, process, potential, and chance, as well as a questioning of the definitions of artist/writer, audience/reader, and the art object. In this reading, Turbulence.org and the Electronic Literature Organization celebrate their commonalities by presenting four writers reading from network-enabled work: Noah Wardrip-Fruin and Nick Montfort will read from their recent Turbulence commissions; 'Two Textual Instruments: Regime Change and News Reader,' and 'Mystery House Taken Over.' Thalia Field will read 'Zoologic,' and also give a short preview of 'Rest/Less.' John Cayley will perform from 'Translation' and related pieces. A discussion will follow." -- From Turbulence
