Dutch digital poetry questions the finality of text

One of the Netherlands' foremost poets, Tonnus Oosterhoff is considered a pioneer of digital poetry. Check out this gem from his body of onscreen "poems in motion". Created using montages, these experimental poems play with everything from the rhythms of spoken language and the imprint of handwriting to the expectations of the reader in order to question the concept of the finished text. 'Plume' has been translated from Dutch by Karlien van den Beukel.

Participants: Tonnus Oosterhoff
