UK Launch of the Electronic Literature Collection

by Scott Rettberg · , 5:22 am

On Thursday, May 17th, at the Institute for Creative Technologies at De Montfort University, in Leicester, a UK Launch of the Electronic Literature Collection will be held. I’ll be introducing the ELC at the at the event, and John Cayley, Jon Ingold, Chris Joseph, and Kate Pullinger will be reading from their work. The first 50 attendees will receive a free copy of the Electronic Literature Collection, Volume 1 on CD-ROM.

The ELC was also recently reviewed briefly in El Pais by Stefano Caldano and at greater length by Tim Wright in Realtime Arts.

    If I am not mistaken, the article from El País credits a photo incorrectly. It says it corresponds to Inanimate Alice, but it features (and it even occupies more space in the picture) Deviant: The Possession of Christian Shaw and Red Riding Hood. I don’t know whether Inanimate Alice is even there on the background or not. Is it really Jane Campion’s? The web just mentions someone (nick)named babel.

    In fact, you are correct — they mis-captioned that picture. That image is from Leishman’s work. Kate Pullinger, I think, wrote the screenplay to Jane Campion’s The Piano. There are also a couple of minor errors in the spelling of two of the editors’ names in the Realtime piece, though hopefully they’ll correct those soon they corrected them.

    According to Inanimate Alice’s official site (one of them), the other author is Chris Joseph, not Jane Campion, as the article says. And according to Kate Pullinger’s official site, what she co-wrote was «the novel of the film The Piano with director Jane Campion.» Now I wonder, how could they mess up their info so much? Is it that hard to check the facts?

  4. Chris Joseph Says:

    Yes, it is miscaptioned, and Kate’s name is wrong there and in the main text (Pulliger without the ‘n’). Kate did co-author the novel of the film the Piano as well as co-author Inanimate Alice; Jane Campion however has nothing to do with Alice.

    babel would be my contribution to the confusion, but I think/hope Alice’s producer’s site ( http://www.brad-field.info ) – which is the ‘about’ page of her main site ( http://www.inanimatealice.com ) – explains that fairly clearly.
