Abstract:

  • Keywords: Generative art, Disruption, Tactile interfaces, Audiovisual poetry, Digital narrative, Tablet computers, European cultural history.

    Antikythera is a tactile, generative and interactive audiovisual poetry artwork for iPad and other tablet devices. It is based on the Antikythera mechanism, the ancient analog computer from c. 100 BC Greece, found in the Aegean Sea in 1900. It links together poetry, new technology, visual and sound art, and researches and explores new forms and possibilities of digital narratives from broken chronology and randomness to determined paths of reading/viewing and lines which change their meanings by the reader’s touch.
