ENDEMIC BATTLE COLLAGE AND OTHER 1987 APPLE BASIC POEMS
by Geof Huth
From Jim Andrews:
Endemic Battle Collage and other 1987 Apple Basic Poems is a suite of programmed, animated poems by Geof Huth. This work is discussed in Chris Funkhouser’s landmark book Prehistoric Digital Poetry. Because this early Huth work is digital and from 1987, it’s been unavailable for many years. You can view the work as video at http://vispo.com/huth or download an emulator and view the poems through the emulator. Also included on vispo.com are writings by Geof Huth about these works and about digital poetry more generally. And an introduction by me to the project.
This is some of the earliest programmed+kinetic visual poetry created. This Huth work and bpNichol’s related First Screening at http://vispo.com/bp exude the sense of excitement Nichol and Huth felt at this incunabular point in the intersection of visual and digital poetry with the cinematic.
