Poète et "artiste du livre" américaine, elle a développé notamment la création de livres en réalité augmentée.
Amaranth Borsuk is a poet, scholar, and book artist interested in textualmaterialityacross media—from digital interactive works to hand-made objects. Her most recent book is As We Know (Subito, 2014), a book-length erasure collaboration with Andy-Fitch. Her other books include Handiwork (Slope Editions, 2012) and Between Page and Screen (Siglio Press, 2012), a book of augmented reality poetry created with Brad Bouse. Her forthcoming project
/Abra/ (1913 Editions), written with Kate Durbin, recently received an Expanded Artists’ Books grant from the Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College Chicago and will be issued this spring as an artist’s book with an iPad app by Ian Hatcher. In addition to these book-based
works, she has collaborated on new media writing projects that include a website bookmarklet that creates erasure poems and a gestural-interactive installation using historic diaries. She received her PhD in Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Southern California and served as a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities at MIT before joining the faculty of the University of Washington, Bothell, where she teaches in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences and the MFA in Creative Writing and Poetics.
