While all of my artwork/digital poetry lives at secrettechnology.com, this lovely heliozoa world was where my art began. So I’ve decided to revive its fading code and build an exhibition of digital poetry interfaces. These poetic creatures function both as stand along creations, but also as digital poetry forms, as new methods/interfaces for understanding/experiencing digital poetry.

Born from the computerless land of farmers and spring thunderstorms, Jason Nelson somehow stumbled into creating awkward and wondrous digital poems and interactive stories of odd lives. Currently he teaches Net Art and Electronic Literature at Griffith University in the Gold Coast’s contradictory lands. Aside from coaxing his students into breaking, playing, and morphing their creativity with all manner of technologies, he exhibits strange net art creatures and interactive multi-dimensional poetry widely in galleries and journals, with work featured around globe in New York, Mexico, Taiwan, Spain, Singapore, and Brazil, at FILE, ACM, LEA, ISEA, ACM, ELO, and dozens of other acronyms. But in the web based realm where his work resides, Jason is most proud of the millions of visitors his artwork/digital poetry portal secrettechnology.com attracts each year.
