J. R. Carpenter

J. R. Carpenter has been an author of electronic literature for at least a decade and a half. Much of her work features cartography, using services like Google maps as both visual art and narrative setting. Maps have been used in art and literature throughout history. With electronic literature representing a shift toward media convergence, it seems appropriate that her work would use them to bridge the gap.

Carpenter recently spoke at the Hypermedia Lab at Carleton University. A compilation of print work, talks, and electronic literature is available on her site.
