Induction/Deduction: Otoliths

In About All Publications, About Hybrid Works on 05/01/2010 at 18:27

For me, this was a first — a three-person, three-country, digital collaboration:

Dorothee Lang, Germany + Karyn Eisler, Canada + Susan Gibb, USA

The result?

Two visual poems published in Issue #17 of Otoliths:
an Australian-based “magazine of many e-things”.

Here’s the direct link: Induction/Deduction

Funny how this came together:

Dorothee and I were in the midst of a two-person collaboration on a hypertext project (still in the works), e-mailing back-and-forth. Alongside discussions about the mechanics of the project itself, we also shared thoughts about our creative process; our decision-making methods; the different forms of reasoning involved. Dorothee suggested these discussions might serve as the foundation for yet another project. And this is where Susan — a hypertext whiz we’d been consulting with — came in.  From there, a three-way collaboration evolved.

An interesting note about Otoliths:

Founding editor, Mark Young, publishes each online issue in book form.
Otoliths #17–the issue in which these images appear–is available here.

And a question:

In your creative process, which form(s) of reasoning do you use?

  1. This is lovely.
    Thanks for these.
    Funny I would run into this today when Poemeleon: a journal of poetry
    http://www.poemeleon.org/
    launched its collaborative issue.
    I have two poems in it written in collaboration with two poets. Here is to future collaborations.
