Amaranth Borsuk publishes poetics essay on "The Aesthetics and Poetics of Deletionism"

Amaranth Borsuk has published a poetics essay on "The Aesthetics and Poetics of Deletionism" together with collaborators Jesper Juul and Nick Montfort in Media-N, the journal of the new media caucus and presents work at annual AWP conference. Part of a special issue of Media-N focused on "The aesthetics of erasure," Borsuk and her collaborators composed an essay describing the concept and process behind their project The Deletionist, a javascript bookmarklet that automatically creates erasure poems (called deletions) from websites. Their piece situates the project within the field of artistic bookmarklets and artware and includes images of deletions created with the tool.
