When I began using video technology to produce my first videopoem, Roda Lume (Wheel of Fire), in 1968, I did not know where the limits were and where my experiments would take me. I was really experimenting on the most elementary meaning of the word experience. A sense of fascination and adventure told me that the letters and the signs standing still on the page could gain actual movement of their own. The words and the letters could at last be free, creating their own space.[Source: E. M. de Melo e Castro, "Videopoetry" in Kac, Eduardo (ed.) Media Poetry: An International Anthology (2007: 176)]
