The annual Electronic Literature Organization (ELO) Conference and Media
Arts Festival was originally scheduled to be held July 16-19, 2020, at
the University of Central Florida in downtown Orlando. As a result of
the global pandemic, the conference was migrated
online. The open access conference repository includes both the
recorded live and submitted asynchronous works, as well as a virtual
exhibition, and is open to all at:
ELO is an organization dedicated to electronic literature, or
e-lit–literary works in which computation forms some essential part of
the aesthetic. #ELOrlando offered
an experimental, virtual opportunity to share research and creative
contributions within an engaging, collegial atmosphere comprising e-lit
scholars and practitioners from across the globe.
The theme for ELO 2020 was “(un)continuity”: participants are
invited to explore fluidity and nonbinary concepts, including,
re/presentation; categorization; spectra of light, sound, and the
ultra/infra visible; social organization; unity; and discord.
We hope that you will find this shared archive useful in your own
research, art, and teaching, in a time when this theme resonates with
our global challenges.
