Reading the Discursive Spaces of TEXT RAIN: Transmodally. A Précis
Author(s): Ricardo, Francisco J.
Many multimodal digital works now transcend established conventions and forms of literature’s essentially textual character by transforming, within their own structure, the presence and nature of text so that it is experienced in a new function, less lexically than in concert with other modalities. A proverbial instance of this transmodal text is exemplified by Utterback and Achituv’s Text Rain. I begin with a distinction over the de-modalization that characterizes “pure literature” and move toward the larger ecriture that occupies the discursive spaces of this transmodal work, in a reading that defines itself around experiential poeisis and against interpretation.
