I have stopped creating new works of e-Literature. I feel that the ethical questions which surround the creation of artworks within an electronic medium are too important to be ignored. In this essay, I reflect upon the note through which I originally announced my decision, whose main intention is to point the attention of the e-Literature community towards the serious absence of ethical assessments within the discipline. I believe these assessments should be considered and integrated as parameters for both the creation and the study of the works of e-Literature. In face of the undeniable materialness of digital technologies, whose manufacturing processes imply the dismantling of natural and social systems in different parts of the world, I believe that rethinking the relationships between literature and its new medium becomes an urgent task, which should be approached in a multidimensional way, including ethics, transdisciplinary research and critical engineering.
