Description:

In this interview series with a Georgia Tech CS/LMC Junior Design team, we discuss the computational dimensions of poetry, authorship, gender, and language. This fun, wide-ranging conversation addresses everything from chance operations to biased algorithms to poetic structure to hacktivism to UX to aesthetics. In the first part of the transcript, published here, the team and I discuss creative coding: computational approaches to experimental poetic techniques, the syntax of coding and poetry, literalism vs. metaphor, and the tension between functionality and creative expression—reading the lines vs. reading between the lines.
