Cursors and Crystal Balls: Digital technologies and the futures of writing

Hazel Smith

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper arises out of my own creative practices, which have spanned poetry, experimental writing, performance, mixed media and now new media, and have involved work as both a writer and musician. These interconnected practices stem from my wish to explore language through different genres, media and environments; to expose myself to change and creative disruption; and to make myself available to different sensual, affective and intellectual pressures. The paper also arises out of my interest in collaborative practices, which have extended my intellectual, technical and creative horizons, as well as constructing different communities within which to share my work. Lastly, the paper conveys my interest in theorising and contextualising these practices, but in terms of process rather than simply product
