Tom Konyves is a Canadian videopoetry pioneer and author of the newly released "Videopoetry: A Manifesto". In 1978, Tom Konyves coined the term “videopoetry,” a genre he pioneered as a member of The Vehicule Poets - a Montreal avant-garde group. His first videopoem, Sympathies of War, used slides, live performance, and typed text on the screen. His most recent videopoem is All This Day Is Good For, a collaboration with his son, Alexander. Konyves has initiated public poetry projects, including The Great Canadian Poetry Machine (Expo 86); curated Montreal’s first Concrete Poetry Exhibition (Vehicule Art, 1980); and given numerous poetry performances. His collection, Videopoems 1978-2008, is available on DVD (AM Productions, 2008). He currently teaches screenwriting and “Word and Image,” a creative visual writing course, at the University of the Fraser Valley, in Abbotsford, British Columbia.
