Presentation Title: Abstraction: An Experiment in Electronic Literature

Section: New Ways of Organizing IV

Location: , 216

Date & Time: Friday, April 19, 2013 - 4:10pm - 4:25pm

Abstract:

I will be demonstrating and reading from my creative thesis, The Artist/The Scientist, an interactive website comprised of a full length screenplay and a short story blended together through web design. The screenplay follows Natalie, an aspiring painter who, after killing a serial killer in self-defense, has a breakthrough in her artistic career at the price of ever worsening hallucinations. The prose story follows Mick, a college student who has just finished watching that very film, and his drunken descent into an unforgettable party. My reading will be accompanied by a brief introduction to my process and the genre of electronic literature.
