I am a former artificial intelligence philosopher. As much as academia is for me a PhD was not. These days I am using my past experience in poetry and AI writing to create concrete poetry.
You can see all of my/the computer's work at http://exampleurl.xyz -
The "quarterly reports" are PDFs of every concrete poem of mine posted online in the three months stated.
I post concrete poems on Masto (and birdsite) every Thursday using the hashtag #concretepoetry in the fediverse.
I grabbed a few years worth of Ampersand journal (Quarterly Journal of the Pacific Center for the Book Arts) and as mich as it excites me to immerse myself in some new ideas I am also seeing a lot of things in my skunkworks laid out in a really simple how-to.
My lack of education in this area is proving to me that "outsider" art perspectives are almost always things that have been done and refined.
However it forces me to educate myself, improve on the basics laid out before me. THAT I can do
I fear I am going to do comething stupid like make my CV longer or
Sorting poems to apply for a stipend
BIG FAVOR FROM Y'ALL
I'm putting together a large portfolio and I would like to know which of my #concretepoetry has really stuck with you.
Please let me know which poems in particular grabbed you.
Much more from my old postings pver the years available at http://futureanachronism.com in the "Quarterly Reports" section for you to look through as well, if you are in the mood.

meanwhile the computer comes through with another magnificent poem title.
talkin' 'bout my work Show more
I've beenable to get linework to appear more like axonometric renderings.
I made a poem today that really got me. Every so often I get the computer to work a certain way, and the final result is such a deeply resonant piece in me.
But my experience with posting these poems, and with submitting them, is that what I truly, deeply like is not what everyone else connects with.
I was thinking of running the poetry generator database tonight but that'll take at least 5 hours for the first go-round and I gotta be up at three am.
It'll wait til tomorrow.
Where are we going to be lost
It seems like everyone has finally stopped discussing the acclaimed American poet, Walt Whitman,
I programmed a computer to trick it into thinking it is making art when it is actually making poetry.
