Bon Marche Studio (UTS Bldg. 3, Lvl. 1, Rm. 105)

Reading and Talk: 10mins

In his novel <i>Spook Country</i>, William Gibson imagines a world composed of holographic forms overlaying the material world. These forms can only be accessed via a URL and GPS coordinates, but as they proliferate they form parallel worlds operating rather like tv channels… My current experimental writing constructs potential worlds existing alongside particular urban locales. These are composed from signs which combine to open unlikely portals to something else.

Anna Gibbs is a writer and researcher in textual, media and cultural studies. She is especially interested in fictocritical and experimental writing, and is working with Maria Angel on a project about new media writing.
