Loss Pequeño Glazier


Over the past decades, my interest in the relationship between digital media and language has spurred numerous projects related to experimental writing, its dissemination, and its interrelation with digital textuality. I am also interested in the performance of digital media and I have been an active practitioner in numerous performances in varied contexts. Besides my own work as a digital poet, I am the Director of the Electronic Poetry Center, the author of Digital Poetics: the Making of E-Poetries (Univ. of Alabama Press) as well as other books, and the Director of E-Poetry, the international E-Poetry Festival series which has occurred in Buffalo, Morgantown (WV), London, Paris, and Barcelona.

Digital interests

My work extends from visual and kinetic text to a focus on digital writing in networked and programmable media. It explores language in New Media and how innovative poetics can be a means of engaging digital media. My focus is on the poetics of New Media insofar as New Media explores the materiality of the medium it engages. I am interested in the resonance between digital installation art, experimental film/video, and innovative poetry and in how we tend to be innovative in visual digital media while sometimes not seeing the opportunities of language in New Media. I am interested in the way language is a force of materiality, and the way it breaks through to become a force in its own right, and the way code can also be a material presence in works of digital art. This means image, text, interactivity, and programming. This includes creative writing for digital media and poesis as a way of thinking through a given material.
