The Experimental Wing—Release v. 3.0 Notes:
Text, Hypertext, Intermedia and Interdisciplinary Creative Research

The Experimental Wing is part of the Virtual Writing University, a collaborative, online initiative to bring The University of Iowa's writing programs together online.

The 'Wing,' embraces the creative interdisciplinary potential of digital production and community-based practice. It is dedicated to the exploration of experimental literary and multimedia hypertext research and production. Time-based media [Internet-based radio and television], online publishing of New Media creative production and scholarship, and live events are integral parts of 'Wing' research.

The 'Wing' is project based. To the right are brief descriptions and links to its projects.

The Iowa Review Web

The Iowa Review Web, now in its tenth year, features hypertext and new writing. The current issue, "Instruments and Playable Text" is guest-edited by Stuart Moulthrop. The next issue, edited by Mark NeuCollins is titled: The Aesthetics of Code."

The Daily Palette

The Daily Palette, now in its sixth year, highlights daily the work of Iowa-identified artists and writers on The University of Iowa's web page. In conjunction with 'Wing' research, The Daily Palette is now fully searchable with advanced archiving features. Users may browse over 1300 participating artists' artworks.
