Poetic Acts & New Media advances the fields of literary and new media studies by clarifying boundaries between competing genres and media through the creation of a new artistic genre, "media poetry." This aesthetic mode of expression/becoming seeks to transform mass culture (our codes of communication) by self-consciously acknowledging how textual, audio, and/or visual signs are constructed according to their simulation and not their representation. This study draws heavily upon literary media theories that intersect with Gilles Deleuze''s philosophy of ''Sense'' as a simulated power of sensory transformations. Media poetry becomes a complex power of ''Sense'' by blending conventional mass-media codes with poetic simulations that provide alternative forms of creating meaning.
