Writ Large Writ Large is an occasional venue and commissioning program for creative work at the intersection of literature, visual arts, and programming.
The ongoing series of screenings, installations, and exhibitions features a curated program of text-based artwork in several related genres which go by different names but all share the use of screens rather than (or in addition to) print media or performance as vessel for the written word. These include kinetic typography, motion design and text animation, visual poetry, cine-poetry, and video poems, interactive poetry, text-based digital and new media art, generative and procedural programmed texts, and many forms of what’s known as “e-lit”. The series gathers the diverse practitioners of these forms under one roof, and coalesces these related movements into a more cohesive whole that demonstrates the potentials of screen-based texts.
We also work with writers, designers, animators, programmers, and other artists to commission new works to be featured in festival programs or in site-specific installations.
