Poet is Programmable
This installation, Poet is Programmable, is a comment on computerized creativity. It showcases the process of program development through three generated poetry books—Poet 0.01, Poet 2.01, Poet 3.01. These books are paired with a projection of Poet 4.01 generating new poetry branching from the previous programs.
