REMAKE ME UP / Electronic literature workshop

The aim of the workshop was to connect the students and non-students of various disciplines and provide them with opportunities to create electronic literature and to make them know about historical approaches to this medium in a creative way. By electronic literature is understood the computer and internet based literary work that is interactive, programmable, playful, intermedial, performative, unstable and often collaborative (with any combinations of those mentioned). By enabling the work-together environment of students of Theory of Interactive Media at the Masaryk University in Brno, students of FAVU VUT in Brno, programmers from Bratislava hackerspace Progressbar and all the others willing to participate, we want to stress the collaborative potential of e-lit. The playful and intermedial nature of e-lit offers a platform for people who play and create with words, letters and graphics, for those who deal with visuals, sound and music and even {or especially} for those who love to cross the media boundaries. Electronic literature can be generative and code-based, can be purely textual, but also focused on image-sound-video relations, it can deliver narratives, follow the line of non-narrative experiment or be poetic.
