ELO 2015: The End(s) of Electronic Literature

Kjell Theøry

Judd Morrissey (School of the Art Institute of Chicago, USA)

Excursion / Locative Augmented Reality Poem
August 6,7 15:30-17:30, August 8 9:00-11:00 (Sydneshaugen skole: Auditorium Q)

Kjell Theøry will be a site-specific mobile Augmented Reality poem mapped visually to geo-spatial coordinates in a public outdoor space in Bergen. The work responds to historical and fictive narratives of Norway as a landscape for exile and escape in conjunction with writings and memories from my residency as a Fulbright Scholar in Bergen last year. It will be accessible for viewing with internet-enabled smart phones and tablets throughout ELO 2015 and will be activated by a brief live event in which I manipulate and read from the virtual space and generate additional material by scanning augmented tattoos on the body of a local male performer. This work evolves out of my AR installation in June 2014 at the Bergen Bibliotek, The Empty House, but will be a substantially new iteration.
