Abstract
Lotta Lotass Fjärrskrift is a work that makes use of three different media, a 50 meter long teleprinter strip and two filmed versions, distributed in cinemas and published on internet, which are portraying how the strip is made through a teleprinter.

The purpose of this study is to investigate by the use of Lars Elleström’s theory of intermediality the different connections between the three different media versions of Fjärrskrift and how the work distance itself from the traditional book medium. Most prominently is, however, the question of what the medial implications do with the work, with the text, with the reading process and with literary public sphere.

Most prominently is, however, the question of what the medial implications do with the work, with the text, with the reading process and with literary public sphere.

Fjärrskrift could be described as a work that puts a literary content within the media of a teleprinter, but it could also be described that it puts the teleprinter media within a literary context.The study proposes that Lotass uses media archaeological poetics, and that the mechanisms of the reading process are made visible by the defamiliarization of them. The three ways of distribution also produces an area of tension between the full accessibility of the internet version and the exclusivity of the teleprinter strip, which only exists in 100 copies.
