Zenon Fajfer,
a Polish poet, playwright, creator and theoretician of liberature, a new literary genre which embraces works that integrate the word with unconventional shapes of the book. He introduced into poetry an original, interactive form called "the emanational poem," in which he simultaneously creates invisible, dimensions of text. He also uses the new media, creating his own version of kinetic poems and hypertextual poetry. See his "Ars poetica" here:
Co-author, with Katarzyna Bazarnik, of books initiating the phenomenon of liberature: a triptych 'Oka-leczenie' (Mute-I-Late, 2000, 2009) and '(O)patrzenie' (Ga(u)ze, 2003) and a poetic happening "Liberty Poem" (New York, Chicago, Taipei, Tokyo, Toulouse, Vienna, Sofia, Bukharest, and Venice); the author of the poem-in-a-bottle "Spoglądając Przez Ozonową Dziurę" (Detect Ozone Whole Nearby, 2004), a bilingual multimedia poetry "volume dwadzieścia jeden liter/ten letters" (2010), "Liberature or Total Literature. Collected Essays 1999-2009" (2010), and "Pieta," (Kraków, 2006, 2012), and a hypertextual volume of emanational poetry "Powieki" (Eyelids, 2013), from which he will present at ELO in Bergen. He has just finished a new collection of poems "Widok z głębokiej wieży" (A View from the Deep Tower).
