Poesia Cinética

Ano Lectivo 2010-2011

Mestrado em Poesia e Poética

Docente: Manuel Portela

O uso da animação digital modifica a representação do tempo e do espaço no interior do poema. 'Poesia Cinética' procurará compreender os processos de cinestesia enquanto poética do significante. Observaremos a simulação do movimento de substituição na cadeia dos significantes, característico da linguagem, em vários poemas cinéticos. Veremos como os dispositivos de animação do texto cinético simbolizam na instabilidade dos significantes a instabilidade dos significados, e vice-versa. Esta reflexão sobre a materialidade gráfica e electrónica da escrita e da leitura mediadas por computador será realizada a partir de obras de autores britânicos, norte-americanos, canadianos, australianos, espanhóis, franceses, portugueses e brasileiros. Hiperligações para as obras a estudar encontram-se na página seguinte: http://www.ci.uc.pt/diglit/DigLitWebCdeCineticos.html
A disciplina funciona em regime de avaliação contínua. A classificação final resultará dos seguintes componentes: a) recensão de um item da bibliografia do programa (c. 2000 palavras, 30%); b) trabalho de análise de um poema animado (c. 2000 palavras, 35%); c) concepção de um guião para um poema animado (35%).

Kinetic Poetry
The use of digital animation changes the representation of time and space within the poem. 'Kinetic Poetry' attempts to understand kinaesthesia as a poetics of the signifier. We will look at ways in which the motion in the chain of signifiers, one of the structural features of language, is simulated in several kinetic poems. We will see how specific forms of animating texts symbolize both the instability of signifiers and the instability of meaning. This reflection on the electronic and graphic materiality of reading and writing in new media will be based upon works by British, North-American, Canadian, Australian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Brazilian authors. Hyperlinks for a selection of digital works can be found at the following webpage: http://www.ci.uc.pt/diglit/DigLitWebCdeCineticos.html

Assessment will be continuous (75% attendance is required). It will be based upon the following assignments: a) a critical review of one item chosen from the course bibliography (c. 2000 words, 40% of final grade); b) analysis of one animated poem in essay form (c. 2000 words, 40%); c) presentation of a storyboard for a kinetic poem (35%).
