Interrupt 4: A Digital Language Conference

Interrupt 4 is the fourth in a series of irregular festival/conferences that explore digital language-based works from a wide range of communities in art, literature, games, music, and computation. Interrupt aims to break through the conventions of self-selecting and self-referring academic conferences, to put researchers in conversation with working artists, poets with programmers, game designers with experimental performing artists. All but the last event on Saturday will take place in the Granoff Center, 154 Angell Street (the closing program is at AS220, downtown, address below). For Interrupt 4's web site, please visit
