e-motive: Visual Poetry in the Digital Age is the first UK exhibition of computer-generated visual poetry. showcasing a variety of works by international artists based in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Visual poetry is a medium that explores the tension that lies between the semantics and the visuality of written language. In this exhibition each piece treats words, letters or symbols as primary material, enriched by the dynamic nature and physical possibilities of technology.
Through e-motive the curators reveal the latest experiments in visual poetry and aim to draw the viewer’s attention to a practice that has received little exposure in the visual arts arena.
The exhibition is curated by Master Gallery Studies students Laura Carnicero, Lydia Gordon, Elina Leventaki and Caroline Sones
