Abstract or Description:

If digital literature is going to emerge as anything other than a facsimile of traditional texts it must deploy the significant strengths that contemporary computation has to offer. This paper will outline my reasons for stating this while also outlining and contextualising the software and book I have developed for my doctoral practice. This software generates bespoke literary content that works in collaboration with an analogue book called South: a psychometric text adventure. I shall explain how philosophies of Real World Interaction and situated programming have informed the development of this work, and why it represents a critique of previous digital forms and the underlying logic of traditional Artificial Intelligence, which I shall argue, has failed to deliver any significant digitally mediated literature
