POEM BY NARI
visual poetry from the cyberstream
 
Does this proliferation in new media poetry also imply or represent an emergence of a "New Poetics?"

If so, how might this new poetics be described, defined, and implemented?

Are text-based electronic environments like MOO's and MUD's a part of this emerging form even when they are not "multi-media?"

Does a new poetics suggest a concomitant shift in aesthetics and in culture?

What types of "literacy" are required to make sense of this poetry?

Given multi-media works' growing need for multiple collaborators-- like programmers and technical specialists-- how are the more traditional notions of authorship, ownership, and "poet" called into question by this new poetics?

Is the programmer an artist or a consultant, and does programming itself need to be incorporated into an examination of the poetics?

What are the appropriate roles of the academy in terms of teaching and responding critically to this poetry?
