More > never-ending tract spewing verse approximations, poetic paroxysms on food, consumption, decadence and desire, a hack of Montfort’s elegant poetry generator Taroko Gorge. There was only one rule in creating GENERATION(S): No new texts. All the texts in this book were previously published in some way. The texts the generators produce are intertwined with the generators’ source code, and these two types of texts are in turn interrupted by excerpts from the meta narrative that went into their creation. Most of the sentences in the fiction generators started off as Tweets, which were then pulled into Facebook. Some led to comments that led to responses that led to new texts. All these stages of intermediation are represented in the print book iteration of GENERATION(S). (jr c)< Less

“Digitura” – this is how Sergey Stepanov defines the modern era in this sharp and at the same time reverent poetic book. Digital technologies prevail over cultural values,... More > consumption and behavior of a person, his personal sphere, freedom of speech and actions, access to information... Love for a person, anxiety about things to come – in the center of “Digitura” by Sergey Stepanov: this is world poetry! "Цифратура" – так в этой поэтически острой и одновременно трепетной по восприятию книге Сергей Степанов определяет современную эпоху. Цифровые технологии довлеют над культурными ценностями, потреблением и поведением человека, его личной сферой, свободой слова и действий, доступом к информации… Но человек остается человеком в любой век, – со своим мятущимся "Я", духовными поисками, обретениями и потерями, исполненный страстей и одиночества в огромном и часто безразличном мире. Любовь к человеку, тревога о грядущем – в центре увлекательной, яркой и звонкой книги Сергея Степанова "Цифратура": мировая поэзия!..< Less
