- Illogic of sense: the Gregory L. Ulmer remix
- Tofts, Darren; Gye, Lisa
- Ulmer's work has been central to contemporary thinking on the future of writing and his international presence as one of the leading figures in media arts discourse has influenced a multitude of disciplines from electronic literature and Internet art to critical theory, communications studies, and art history. This collection of multi-tracked writing puts into play many of Ulmer's breakthrough theories summed up in his most recognised hot-button terms: applied grammatology, heuretics, post(e)-pedagogy, textshop, mystory, and choragraphy. Encouraged by the example of Ulmer's own hyperrhetorical writing style, the authors incorporate collaged imagery, mp3 soundtracks, and QuickTime movies into their innovative multimedia mix while exploring how these same extensions of 'writerly performance' explode the false barrier between academic discourse and spontaneous poetics, narrative and rhetoric, and autobiography and fiction. Positing an 'illogic of sense' to reclaim what Ulmer calls an 'anticipatory consciousness', designed to utilise the force of intuition as a way to invent emergent forms of knowledge, this grouping of hypermedia texts showcase how interdisciplinary writers can remix the methodological approach of an avant-garde philosophy propelled by Ulmer, one that prioritises an ongoing process of discovery and media arts assemblage.
