Designing Literary Writing in the Digital Age

The screens are multiplying and interfering in our daily lives. They are an immediate and continuous relay of a flow of information that seems inexhaustible. Inevitably, they change our experience of the world and redefine our relationship to writing and reading.

At the intersection of creative writing and graphic design, this research project questions the author’s practice in the digital age and proposes to elaborate poetic structures that correspond to our current experience of the world.

Through a systematic approach to writing and developing protocols, programming word processors that move away from the linearity of commonly used tools or the design of typographic characters that contribute to literalism, this project puts in tension the practices of graphic and typographic design with the writing process, from the draft text to its edition.
