Talk with Jörg Piringer (Digital Poet, Vienna)

The Ghent Centre for Digital Humanities, in collaboration with the Department of Literary Studies, kindly invites you to the talk with the digital poet Jörg Piringer.

Jörg Piringer lives in Vienna, Austria. He is a member of the Institute for Transacoustic Research and of the Vegetable Orchestra (Das erste Wiener Gemüseorchester).

Piringer is an author and performer of digitally enhanced sound performances and digital visual poetry. Reflecting how we use language every day in a technical environment, Jörg decided early on that the very instruments that shape our language experience need attention.

Jörg’s instruments are the digital algorithms and data bases of myriads of language fragments alongside his self-produced soft- and hardware. He works in many forms, including visual, digital, and sound poetry, as well as music.
