SALMON CREEK — A virtual museum and library of more than 2,500 digital literary works from around the world, called The NEXT, is available for anyone to view at the-next.eliterature.org. Created by WSU Vancouver’s Creative Media and Digital Culture program with staff and faculty of the Electronic Literature Lab, The NEXT was created for the international arts group called the Electronic Literature Organization.

Launched on May 24, “the museum responds to the growing need for open-access, travel-free cultural and research experiences for today’s public and scholars, making its archives accessible for the next generation of readers,” a news release noted.

Visitors can interact with collections of more than 50 videos, 4,000 images, 3D models and interactive GIFs. In April, the project was awarded second place in the Podium Competition of WSU Vancouver’s Research Showcase.

The latest exhibit called “Trans(creation): A Celebration of the Art of Agusto de Campos” is on display at the website through Dec. 30.
