Nick Montfort: Riddle & Bind & Generators

January 12, 2011 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm  |  Stevenson Fireside Lounge


Nick Montfort will read from his recent book, Riddle & Bind (Spineless Books, 2010), which contains poems that relate to his work in digital media. These include riddles (figuratively describing something that is left for the reader to guess) as well as constrained writing à la Oulipo. Then, he’ll read some of the output of a few of my concise, free text generators, including my just-published collaboration with Stephanie Strickland, Sea and Spar Between. The words in Sea and Spar Between come from Emily Dickinson’s poems and Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. The talk will conclude with him taking questions and discussing the poems and systems presented.
