      Poetry--Purple Blurb Reading Series: John Cayley & Daniel C. Howe

      Time: 7:30pâ€"9:00p

      Location: 14E-310

      The Readers Project is a collection of distributed, performative, quasi-autonomous poetic 'Readers' - active, procedural entities with distinct reading behaviors and strategies. We release these Readers onto inscribed surfaces that may be explicitly or implicitly, visibly or invisibly, constituted by their texts.

      Designed to support the creation of novel works of digital literature, Daniel C. Howe's RiTa library, in which "The Readers Project" is implemented, provides a unique set of tools for artists and writers working in programmable media. RiTa is free and open-source and integrates with the popular Processing environment for digital arts programming.

      John Cayley writes digital media, particularly in the domain of poetry and poetics. Information on his works may be found at programmatology.shadoof.net.. Cayley is a visiting professor at Brown University, Literary Arts Program.

      Daniel C. Howe is a digital artist and researcher whose work explores the intersections of literature, computation, and procedural art practice. He recently received his PhD (on generative literary systems) from the Media Research Lab at NYU and was awarded a Computing Innovations fellowship from the National Science Foundation for 2010. He currently resides in Providence, RI where he teaches at Brown and RISD, and is a resident artist at AS220
