The Arts Festival welcomes worksthat extend beyond the computer monitor and the gallery walls, such as soundworks, mobile works and site-specific projects.

The Committeeespecially welcomes submissions from artists who are new to electronicliterature or who are in the beginning stages of their e-­‐literary artistic production.

Submissionsare being accepted for the following parts of the exhibition and performanceprogram:


 
Hybridityand Synesthesia: Beyond Peripheries of Form and Consciousness

This aspect ofthe program will emphasize works, particularly installations, that push at theedges of literature and other forms, and that appeal to other aspects of thesensorium than those we typically associate with reading. Works that forexample involve haptic sensation, touch-­‐based interactivity, innovative audio elements, interactive images, orlocative technologies.


 
Interventions:Engaging the Body Politic

Thisexhibition will feature works that engage with contemporary cultural discourseand political reality, challenging audiences to consider digital artifacts andpractices that reflect and intervene in matters of the environment, socialjustice, and our relation to the habitus.


 
Decentering: Global Electronic Literature

Whilethere are strong centers of activity in electronic literature in North Americaand Western Europe, innovations in digital textuality are also taking place in Eastern Europe and in the Southernhemisphere. This exhibition will focus on these lesser-­‐known phenomena.


 
Kid-­E-­Lit:Digital Narratives for the Young

The firstgeneration of digital natives is finding a plethora of apps and interactivedigital narratives made for their iPads and computers, perhaps learning how tothink in a new digital vernacular. This exhibition will focus on innovations in digital reading experiences forchildren.
