Kosmopolis 2008

Exhibition

Kosmotica II

Kosmotica II is the natural evolution of Hyperiment, Lector Mundi and Kosmotica I, presented in past Kosmopolis editions. It makes reference to a coming together of media which are in the process of expansion, but also to imaginary and recreational disciplines. It is a space dedicated to learning and participation which delves into hypertexts, the emergence of electronic literature, the development of digital interactive narratives, the dissemination of formats, changes in the way we read and write and the transition toward hypermedia.

If domotics deals with technological developments in the control and management of domestic space, then kosmotics is an experimental discipline investigating, processing and implementing the influence of new media on literature, literature in new media and the cultural changes implied by this dizzying process of convergence.
