På Jason Nelsons hjemmeside secrettechnology.com kan man opleve flere af hans digitale digte og læse mere om hans digitale litteratur.

Click Literature er et programspor i Click Festival, der afsøger og præsenterer den digitale litteratur.

Digitaliseringen har gjort det muligt for litteraturen at vandre ud af papirets materialitet og over i andre medier. Men bevægelsen er ikke kun udadrettet, den går også den anden vej: Mens litteraturen flytter over i nye medier, flytter de nye medier ind i litteraturen. Måden litteraturen skrives på, måden litteraturen perciperes på, måden vi fortolker litteraturen på betinges af det digitale medie.

Den digitale litteratur er en flermedial praksis, hvor den digitale infrastruktur materialiserer sig som en del af det litterære værk; hvor mediet og indholdet er gensidigt betydningsbærende. CLICK Literature vil i de kommende år sætte fokus på, hvor den digitale litteratur bevæger sig hen, både i den danske og den internationale litteratur.

Jason Nelson beskriver sit nyeste digt

"Within a digital poem the notions of literary/artistic/poetic text encompasses more than just words and sentences, lines and letters. All an interactive poem’s elements become critical literary texts, including the images and video, the movement and animation, the coding and interface, the words and sounds.With “these subconscious drives” the goal was to build a dynamic and interactive interface exploring multiple screen depths and dimensions.

The notion was to emulate how I understand, how my brain imagines poetry as a multilinear, multimedia, multi-spatial and recombinatory space. In numerous ways, the work is much like walking through a busy city, the poetics of buildings and narratives of people intersecting, moving towards and away, continually mutating. (Hint: try pressing your space bar!).

And inside of this reforming space are a hundred poetic/literary/artistic tiles, small moments of experience and diagram. Each new movement and click and swipe creates new 3-dimensional stanzas. “these subconscious drives” is a playground for what streams from the back of our brains."
