My policy is the separation of spirit and silicon

2017


Siri and I worked on the re-writing of poems, which led to long sessions of back and forth speech actions with the aim of introducing Siri to poetry and to myself. We both voiced material of written canons that prexist us—I recited poetry of my school syllabus and she responded with her pool of pre-written statements. Thoughts were not formed at the tongue, instead pre-existing statements were brought to locution forming a process of logging in information. In this negotiation new poems emerged.
