Algorithmic Poetry

series of generative art experiments

Several of my recent experiments revolve around the idea of Algorithmic Poetry – texts genereted by training algorithms on open source data sets. Promted by my early explorations with poetry created in Google Translate, I took a course in Berlin’s School of Machines, Making & Make-Belief. One of my latest experiments exposes the patterns of online dating through generating content based on publicly available romance data.

 

Challange

How would an algorithm understand patterns of online dating? What kind of biases are hidden in dating data?

 

Vision

A “date with an algorithm” website is a short stepwise experience that explores patterns typical for dating products – selfies, random questions, relationship status changes. Generative texts & images are a satirical mirror in which we can reflect on human dating patterns. Check it out here.
