The conference

Rethink digital poetry

In this talk, Christian “Mio” Loclair and Marta Soto will lead through an exciting journey from urban street art to new media design and creative technologies. What does GPU coding and street dance have in common? Is there an invisible bond among every discipline? To review the benefits of interdisciplinary research and its characteristic poetry, they will study how very different field can enrich each other in abstraction and on concrete examples. Furthermore, the use of cutting edge technology and its benefits for visual communication will be critically analyzed and discussed. Let's headspin deep into invisible storytelling to rethink digital poetry.
