The article shows how the digital experience of the relationship between application and code manifests itself in a couple of transmedial poetic works created in the new millennium, and what this experience does to the relationship between the understanding of the concepts of culture and nature. The works being examined are, firstly, digital animations of Bengt Emil Johnson’s concrete poetry from the 1960’s, made by Christian Yde Frostholm in 2005, secondly Frostholm’s own poetry/photo-work “Afrevne ord” from 2004, and finally Johannes Heldén’s work “Evolution” from 2014. In all these cases the relationship between application and code is being put into play, partly due to the digital form, partly due to a foregrounded meta-perspective upon this form. This meta-perspective also sheds light on the idea of a divide between culture and nature – and questions the premises of that idea.
