JOHN CAYLEY: THE FUTURE OF WRITING IS THE FUTURE OF READING
John Cayley makes digital language art, particularly in the domain of poetry and poetics. His practice as poet, translator, publisher, and bookdealer intersects with his training in Chinese culture and language. Current work explores ambient poetics in programmable media, writing in immersive artificial audiovisual environments, and aestheticized vectors of reading; with parallel theoretical interventions concerning the role of code, the temporal properties of textuality, and ‘writing to be found’ with/against the services of totalizing statistical models of language. John Cayley is a Professor of Literary Arts at Brown University.
