RE: [-empyre-] on electronic poetry
but that doesn't reply to your question. of course one doesn't have
'the answer'. works that
involve some random aspect, well, consider the notion of a
'combinatorium'. a combinatorium
consists of all the possible points you can navigate to and all the
possible ways you can get to
all the possible points. that is, in a sense, the 'space' of the
piece. if the space is
sufficiently large, it is almost certain that the author will not
have travelled all the routes.
but we are encouraged to get a sense of the space, the
combinatorium, to feel out that space and
its drift. not by travelling every route (usually), but in a manner
similar to how we discover
other types of spaces, like a landscape in a hike.
I was also meaning that we bring a certain unexpected randomness to
the experience through our own 'history'.
eg. a minimal haiku that brings to mind 'cold rain' will also bring
to mind a vision, sound, smell and feeling for me.
Personally I feel poetry should be like a well guided synesthesic experience...
