Eduardo Kac

As a part of the discussion on how concrete poetry evolved from the sixties into other and more visual and complex figures I came across the brasilian born artist Eduardo Kac (b. 1962), who is most famous for manipulating an albino rabbit (who said Alice in Wonderland) so that it, when exposed to ultravioleet light, looks neongreen. This brings forward a whole discussion about nature versus culture, moral questions an so on. In this context however Eduardo Kac is interesting because of his 'invention' of the term "Holopoetry" which as far as I can see is poems written like holograms, but have a look for yourself at his homepage
