Tom Moody is known for his lo-tech digital art. In conjunction with Telefone Sem Fio, Moody will talk about his visual mash-up of de Campos's digital material, and about the animated gif as art-form. In particular, Moody will consider whether the concrete poetry movement of the 1950s anticipated the mechanics of the Internet, as some have said, or whether the movement still exists in a "street" form on websites such as Tumblr.com and Dump.fm.
