Introduction - Rationale The Machine Posthuman Cyborgs The difference between analogue & digital – simulations vs representations Conclusion References
Knowledge towards the creation of effective & specifically targeted game based learning experiences. An examination of ePoetry as digital creative content can inform: interactive entertainment digital game based learning
Analogue – Representations Aristotle – mimesis Poetry as a likeness or imitation of the world around us Digital – Simulations Giddings (2007) & Hayles (2004) The computer as a simulation machine, simulating the world around us
(Givens & Ong, Fallow, Online)
My work Concatenation is a text-as- apparatus. It was necessarily created within, and necessarily experienced via the computer (Weight 2006). Not only is the apparatus essential to digital creative expression but so too are we. We are part of the process, the human and apparatus communication within the exchange, the cybernetic loop (Aarseth 1997).
