The Winner of the first "N. Katherine Hayles award for Criticism of Electronic Literature”, 2014:
"Evolution is an online artwork designed to emulate the texts and music of poet and artist Johannes Heldén, with the ultimate goal of passing 'the imitation game test' as proposed by Alan Turing in 1951."
“Evolution” by Johannes Heldén & Håkan Jonson, wrote one Jurist, “an interesting critical-creative experiment. . . . [that] captures the boundary crossing spirit of the ELO.” Another wrote that “Evolution” “is both a work of literature and multi-voiced, multi-modal criticism.” Another wrote that “this collection of seven short critical responses to the generative poem Evolution by Johannes Heldén and Håkan Jonson plays with the genre of criticism by enclosing the essays within over 200 pages of code. . . . Each of the essays in this collection is poetic and thought-provoking in its own way. . . . The rest of the book is left to the code itself, and to logs of its output. Perhaps the book was written, compiled, designed by Evolution itself. Even the table of contents looks like computer code, laid out the way that a piece of software might prefer. I’m ranking this book first on my list because of its challenges to the form of criticism – there is a creativity and unexpectedness in the way that these responses to the text are presented that is very engaging and that contributes to the work and to the field in general.”2016-11-172016-11-172016-12-29Bibliographically approved
