Lecture featuring Shelley Jackson, author of "Patchwork Girl"
Friday, October 18, 2013 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm
As part of "Pathfinders: Documenting the Experience of Early Digital Literature," author Shelley Jackson will give a free lecture about her work in early digital literary art.
Jackson is the author of “Patchwork Girl,” a work of electronic literature published in 1995 that is often discussed as an important work of hypertext fiction. It was written in Storyspace, which is one of the first stand-alone hypertext authoring software programs before Web browsers became common, and published in Eastgate Systems. Early electronic literature will be the focus of Jackson’s lecture.
"Pathfinders" is an exhibit of early digital literary art by four of the most prominent pioneer of the form, all presented on vintage computers. Open now through October at Nouspace Gallery & Media Lounge, located inside the North Bank Artist Gallery at 1005 Main Street, Vancouver, Wash.
Angst Gallery, 1015 Main Street, Vancouver, Wash.
