New Interfaces for Textual Expression / Allison Parrish

„New Interfaces for Textual Expression is a series of devices intended to create and manipulate text. Analogous to contemporary work in the field of New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME), New Interfaces for Textual Expression are intuitive but not literal: they map gestures not to characters (as with conventional writing devices, such as the keyboard and the pen), but to broader manipulations of language and layout. The devices suggest new syntaxes for composing, reading, and performing text.“

The Artist is Typing / Guido Segni

„ is a platform for algorithmic literature. was designed around the following question : “What would an algorithmic literary writing tool look like?” … Many excellent “e-lit” tools, languages and libraries already exist for algorithmic literature (cf. Twine, RiTa, Fungus, …). Many of these tools, however, do not focus on the writing act, and require using development tools during the actual process of writing. … For the platform, we instead focused on a writing tool that a poet might find compelling, and would therefore evolve out of an interface dedicated to the modular written word. As the research project evolved, our goal slowly evolved into a writing tool for text-based algorithmic literature, associated with a “programming language for poets” named AutomaticWriting<>.“


Writing environment with strong focus on structure.
