Ciudades perdidas, callampas, villas miseria, favelas, todas son lo mismo.

Un día, Góngora le propone a Gorozpe asociarse para elevar su juegp al más alto nivel: "¿Qué tal si usted y yo, tocayo, apoyamos a un candidato imposible para l. a. primera magistratura del país?". Ese candidato, claro, sería Gorozpe. Sólo que para ese momento, él lo sabe, deberá deshacerse de Góngora, o al menos neutralizarlo. ¿Cómo proceder contra tan ambitious adversario? ¿Cómo detener el remolino que arrastra al país hacia los angeles cloaca?

La única vía abierta siempre es los angeles del espíritu. Ciega e irracional, pero también poderosa, avasalladora, l. a. fe sigue ahí. Un Niño Dios alado empieza a predicar en medio del tráfico de l. a. mayor avenida de l. a. ciudad y su madre, l. a. Virgen, lo acompaña. Las sadly del niño son postizas y su madre es quien se las coloca, pero eso no importa. l. a. gente cree, quiere creer, necesita creer, y eso basta.

"En Adán en Edén brotan algunas páginas del excelente y lúcido escritor que sigue siendo Fuentes, una de las voces imprescindibles de los angeles narrativa latinoamericana y universal" -Joaquín Marco, El Cultural -

Example text

Generative art, whereby an algorithm is used either to gen­ erate texts according to a randomized scheme or to scramble and rearrange preexisting texts, is currently one of the most innovative and robust categories of electronic literature . 4 6 Philippe Bootz has powerfully theorized generative texts, along with other varieties of electronic literature, in his functional model that makes clear distinctions between the writer’s field, the text’s field, and the reader’s field, pointing out several im­ portant implications inherent in the separation between these fields, including the fact that electronic literature introduces temporal and logical divisions between the writer and reader different from those enforced by print .

But when the sequences are folded into proteins—the process re­ sponsible for determining functionality—the analogue pro­ cesses of topology become crucial as they continuously inter­ act with the genetic sequences. As this example suggests, digital and analogue processes together perform in more complex ways than the digital alone, for each has strengths complementary to the other. Digital processes, because they are discrete, have much finer control over error than analogue processes.

Liu urges a coalition between the “cool”— designers, graphic artists, programmers, and other work­ ers within the knowledge industry—and the traditional hu­ manities, suggesting that both camps possess assets essential to cope with the complexities of the commercial interests that currently determine many aspects of how people live their everyday lives in developed societies. Whereas the traditional Electronic Literature 37 humanities specialize in articulating and preserving a deep knowledge of the past and engage in a broad spectrum of cul­ tural analyses, the “cool” bring to the table expert knowledge about networked and programmable media and intuitive understandings of contemporary digital practices.
