poetry video, front and center

"Illume: An Alchemy of Text and Image" is coming on Saturday, 17 September, from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM at the Gene Siskel Film Center, on north State Street, in Chicago's Loop district.

Instigated by Gerard Wozek and Mary Russell of Robert Morris College, the program signals a return of critical and creative energy to the genre of poetry video. It also connects Chicago's zeitgeist with film and literary communities further afield.

Chicago's own investment in the poetry video genre is significant, early, and historical, owing to the years of annual poetry video festivals presented by the Guild Complex, produced by Kurt Heintz and Jean Howard in the 1990s with Quraysh Ali Lansana and Larry Winfield. But even these festivals happened well after original poetry video works were being rendered in Chicago. The early festivals dug into local history to showcase such local pioneers as Chet Long and Arturo Cubacub, who had produced poetry in artistic video form long in advance of series such as Bob Holman's United States of Poetry. That said, Holman himself previewed segments of his PBS series at the fourth such Guild festival, advancing Chicago as an auspicious site for exhibiting and developing poetry for television.

After the 1990s, however, poetry video activity experienced a lull in the US as the Internet attracted the talents of many people who once invested themselves solely in video works. The only other festival besides Chicago's to regularly convene on the genre, held annually in San Francisco, folded after a run of over twenty years. Since the end of the Guild Complex's run of festivals, no major event punctuated the relative drought of poetry video presentations in Chicago except for Geoconference 2, presented by at the Center Portion arts space in 2001.

Meanwhile, other parties in Vancouver (2000), Riga (2001), and Berlin (2002) came to the genre, and began curating and presenting new poetry videos in festival format. So the genre of poetry video was not been asleep everywhere, just in America for the most part. New works created by Americans in these intervening years were sometimes "discovered" abroad for lack of local venues. The Illume program marks the end of Chicago's (and by extension, of the US's) hiatus from the discourse on poetry video.

In the intervening years, the genre has changed as a reflection of the new media that video producers and poets use. While the Internet drew some talent away from the form, it has nevertheless given artists much more powerful, verbally-intimate technology for rendering their art. New visualizations and interactions between image, text, and sound happen in current works that were impractical a decade ago. Illume will enable the audience to appreciate poetry video's evolution in the last decade by offering older and recent poetry videos together.

Illume also promises to restore some of the open critical dialogue that was present in the original poetry video festivals held in Chicago, by posing the screening as a conversation with the audience. Videomakers and poets will hold a forum on poetry video as part of the screening, and the audience will be encouraged to participate. Russell, a veteran director, and Wozek, her veteran comrade in poetry, will be joined by Vancouver videopoetry pioneer Heather Haley, along with other artists from Chicago.

the latest from Triplopia:

In physics, it is a disturbance that obscures the clarity of a signal; in computer science, it is meaningless data; to our ears, it is a sound of any kind, from music to the faint sound of breath, from static to oral poetry, from rhythm to tone, and all the sounds in between. This summer, Triplopia invites you to listen closely as the e-journal takes on Noise.

The current issue of Triplopia Spotlights award-winning poet, musician and screenwriter, Joy Harjo, in a discussion on the fusion of oral and written poetry, the responsibility of the poet, and the way music penetrates us all.

Enjoy more from Joy Harjo in the Feature section, where she explores American Indian mythology with her prose poem, "The Crow and the Snake." Also in features, Norman Ball discusses poetic voice in his essay, "Authentic Voice: A Catalog of Discontents," and the gifted Brian F. Laule explores a loss of the senses in his short story, "The Eyes that Jewel Our Heads."

In the Poets section, discover the various ways in which poets utilize sound as we welcome original and innovative poetry from Arlene Ang, David Benson, John Bryan, Robert Klein Engler, Laurie Mazzaferro, Damon McLaughlin, Barbara Taylor, and Andrena Zawinski.

In Triplopia's Reviews, Tania Van Schalkywk delves into both the beauty and the horror of noise as she interviews several successful writers in this issue's TripPicks. Uncle Flatboot evaluates poetry websites which contain "unexpected brilliance" -- read along as Tryst, The Alsop Review, and Slow Trains Literary Journal fall under the watchful gaze of Paul Sonntag. And, Triplopia editor Gene Justice analyzes the relationship of audience and text throughout the poetry of Catherine Daly and Bobbie Lurie.

Featured artwork includes visual noise from the lenses of Ola Badola, Jeff Crouch, Jake Levin, Stephen Gibson, Jamie Gil, Manolis Kanakis, Lucretious, Carlos Paes and Julie Taylor.

Finally, the Yawp's neighbor has almost driven him to sustain his brain in a vat of beer. Find out why in this edition's Barbaric Yawp.

The theme of the autumn edition of Triplopia is "Heat." Show the editors a little smoke and fire by submitting artwork, prose and poetry by September 1st. See the current issue for guidelines.

2006 Slamdance Film Festival call for entries: "Calling Anything That Moves"

If it isn't already a poetry video, your own work of visual literature nevertheless has a venue waiting for it. The 12th Annual Slamdance Film Festival, scheduled to take place, 19 thru 27 January, 2006 in Park City, Utah, officially launched its call for entries on 6 July. "We are currently accepting short and feature film submissions in all genres for the 2006 edition of the festival," Sarah Diamond, Director of Programming announced. Slamdance will screen about 100 films in total.

Slamdance is a highly competitive juried venue. The 2005 festival received over 2,800 submissions from all over the world. Fewer than 24 features in the narrative and documentary feature categories combined will make it into the main competition, which is strictly devoted to films without domestic theatrical distribution, from first-time feature directors, working with relatively low budgets. Slamdance has remained true to its founding mandate that it is a festival, "For Filmmakers, By Filmmakers," meaning that the programming team is comprised of filmmakers, many who are Slamdance alumni.

Entry forms and application information are available through the Slamdance website. All film selections will be posted on the 2006 festival page during the second week of December. Presenting sponsors of the 2006 Slamdance Film Festival are Kodak and fox21. Additional sponsors will be announced as they are confirmed.

Early Deadline: August 29, 2005
Final Deadline: October 17, 2005
Short Films under 40 minutes: October 11, 2005

Slamdance's industry and creative credentials are impressive. It has successfully established year-round ventures including the Screenplay Competition, Best Of Screenings in the U.S., Festival events in China and Poland, the Anarchy Online Film competition, the Dirty Dozen DVD Series (currently in its 7th volume), and short film productions dubbed "$99 Specials." Slamdance films have won Spirit Awards, the Palm d'Or at Cannes, and even an Oscar. Alumni include Memento and Batman Begins director Christopher Nolan ('99 award-winner Following); the Russo Brothers ('97 entry Pieces) and Monster's Ball and Neverland director Marc Forster ('96 Audience Award winner for Loungers). Participation in the Slamdance Film Festival helped to discover these filmmakers and to propel them into their next feature productions.

a call for writing on VJ Theory: a philosophy and cultural theory of VJ'ing and realtime interaction

VJs occupy a unique niche among artists, as they function between stage and screen. They have to wrangle technology that is new, often unstable, and rarely assembled in the configurations they choose. A VJ's tools are often patched into solutions well outside than their intended use. And that's just the tech side. On top of this, they're obliged to entertain large paying audiences, to generate video art as counterpoint to live music or as aesthetic substance unto itself, and to know when not to upstage the front act. Their hacked-together systems must perform with theatrical and musical finesse. VJ's are drawn into very real, immediate dialectics between image and sound, between theater and cinema, between art theory and the hard pragmatism of stagecraft.

During the AVITUK05 VJ'ing and live audio visual art festival, there was a fantastic level of debate based on both the theory and practice of VJ'ing and realtime interactive installations and the questions those practices raise. Paul Mumford and Lara Houston have been organizing Narrative Lab, a program of lectures, screenings, performances and projects as a major strand since of AVITUK since 2003. The group has sought to encourage debate, spark new work arising from theory, and facilitate collaboration examining the territories of narrative. Over the last two years the Narrative Lab has hosted lectures on hypertextuality, meta narratives, psychogeography, screen aesthetics, structuralism, process methodologies and various production techniques.

These theoretical debates have now expanded across many of the other sessions. What became apparent was the lack of written texts which attempt to deal with these questions which involves everybody's practice. (And therein is a parallel with spoken word which, as a recently popularized form, has just begun to build a body of critical discourse from experienced practitioners.) With this in mind the Narrative Lab proposes to gather a collection of articles and essays which begins to deal with these new media debates.

The editors offer some suggested areas to address in contributed essays. Please feel free to suggest your own:

1- Narrative and hyper narrative

  • The cultural position of narrative
  • Meaning in narrative
  • Narrative Structures
  • New narrative
  • Cognitive process and discourse\Narrative Practice

2- Ethics

  • Copyright and "copyleft" (the creative commons open source software and gnu licensing)
  • Cross cultural appropriation of imagery themes and content (sources for video and other visual assets and it's relation to the social)
  • Commercial sponsorship and market flooding

3- Real time processing and the problem of the "now"

  • Problem of the 'real' and the problem of the "now"
  • Internet realtime data

4- Collaboration and rhizomic relations

  • VJ-to-DJ Network collaborations

5- Philosophical and cultural perspectives including

  • Phenomenology
  • Language and the body
  • Schizoanalysis
  • Semiology
  • Feminist analysis
  • Deleuzian movement/Image
  • Habermas and the relationships with cinema and theatre

6- Interaction

  • Public/ work interaction (how much should the interaction be apparent to the user of an installation for example)
  • the VJ and interaction

7- Software

  • Open source and proprietary software
  • Latest software developments and software in development
  • Software and ideas led production of work

8- Aesthetics

  • Moving wallpaper
  • The problem of the formal time/movement image
  • Control and the dispersal of control
  • Crafting the image and its relations
  • Abstract animation (e.g. Oscar Fischinger, Len Lye) and it's relation to reactive 3D modeling

The editors see this volume as paralleling the early anthologies of film criticism, such as 'Movies and Methods' by Bill Nichols, containing a broad range of analytical perspectives relating to the new medium. This is an invitation to submit a short synopsis, to propose an article or ideas to be published as a book. Please send it to the following e-mail address:

&NOW: the Lake Forest Literary Festival

The second iteration of &NOW: A Festival of Innovative Writing and Art, merged with the second annual Lake Forest Literary Festival (LFLF), will be held on April 5-7, 2006 at Lake Forest College, 30 miles north of Chicago.

This three-day festival will celebrate contemporary aesthetic practice in its most inventive forms: writing, visual, and multimedia art that is aware of its own institutional and extra-institutional history, that is as much about its form and materials-about language-as about subject matter.

&NOW/LFLF will bring together a range of writers and artists interested in exploring the possibilities of form and the limits of expression; writers and artists working to emphasize text as a medium and as an influence.

If traditional, mainstream art and literature are the equivalents of 19th Century still-life, innovative production might be the text scrawled on genetically engineered cells--works more interested in producing fantastic machines of art, rather than creating transparent windows to a world that no longer exists.

By bringing together innovative writers and artists, &NOW/LFLF will take stock of the "other" tradition-and perhaps offer a glimpse of where it is going.

&NOW / Lake Forest Literary Festival, convening April 5-7, 2006 at Lake Forest College, Lake Forest, IL. Proposal deadline: October 15, 2005. Click to the conference website for full info. Send all correspondence to: The &NOW/LFLF organizing committee are Davis Schneiderman, Tom Denlinger, Bob Archambeau, Steve Tomasula, Christina Milletti, and Dimitri Anastasopoulos.

And finally, some backstory on the origins of the blog. Did you know that the fellow who actually coined the term "weblog" was once a Chicagoan? Jorn Barger maintained one of the first websites of its kind from right here in Chicago in the mid-1990s, from a humble Ukrainian Village apartment using a very modest vintage Macintosh and a simple dial-up account. Describing Barger is possibly best done in relative terms. Jorn Barger is to cyberculture what Thax Douglas is spoken word. Both men are oblique, brainy, and absolutely one-of-a-kind. To this column's astonishment, though, came the following link to Wired magazine describing Barger's plight. The follow-up on Barger has since proven more positive. Barger's blog, robot wisdom, is alive and well again, as Barger has taken a more stable living situation. A salute to Jorn Barger, cyberarts pioneer. Be well, good friend. And we promise never again to tip-toe all over your typewritten manuscripts, even if we're only in stocking feet.
