Visual Poet Jim Andrews at Centre for Digital Media
The students of the Masters of Digital Media Program, faculty, staff and special guests were treated to a guest lecture by Jim Andrews, who publishes vispo.com, a website dedicated to visual poetry and other interactive digital art forms.
Jim is a writer, programmer, poet, and digital media Renaissance man. He is also an interactive audio designer as well as the author of dbcinema, a wonderfully cool digital visual collage generator that he demonstrated during his talk. He is a leading thinker/artist/programmer working at all interstitial points across the digital media arts continuum.
Here is what Jim has to say about his work:
Walt Whitman wrote one book: Leaves of Grass. He changed it throughout his life. Vispo.com is my 'book'. And it isn't a book at all but, hopefully, something that you can experience as many times as you like and find different things each time--very different, and of a new and ongoing life in writing/art/sound/programming.
