A Fine Line Anthology

A generative approach to poetry exploring life, significance, and human-machine symbiosis.

When daily repetition becomes boring, how can we wake up to being alive? Inspired by graphic notation and aleatoric composition, unearthing the beauty overlooked in the seemingly meaningless moments of everyday life was my guiding objective.

The result is an experimental anthology generated through Processing. Poetic forms informed the algorithms to follow. The human stream of consciousness became the context to pull from. A fine line is explored between the mechanical and organic as natural rhythmic expression is superimposed upon another language structure. Technology becomes an extension of human expression to create new perspectives and allow for pleasant surprises.

To be present in ordinary and extraordinary moments unearths the beauty of living. Words, noise, or moments become powerful when we choose to pay attention to them.
