“Virtual poetry results from a basic need to impel a new kind of creation related to facts whose emergence — for their morphological and/or structural characteristics — would be improbable in the natural context. … all creative processes will move into the virtual space offered by the machine.” Beunos Aires, May 1995.

“The Lye exhibition was a reminder to me that one of the recent trends in electronic literature, towards the production of works that feature letters moving in space, often synchronized to a musical soundtrack, is not precisely a novel phenomena, but something that writers and artists have been experimenting with to some degree since the dawn of moving image technology.” Letters in Space, at Play. Scott Rettberg
