My digital poetry work was featured on the Ambit Magazine website by Astra Papachristodoulou. Read the feature here.
I’ll start with one of the most innovative poets that I have come across; Nick Murray. Murray’s ‘The Moon Is…’ is one of his many mind-blowing generative writing poems which is based on the intersection of technology and poetry. I could go on for days about Murray’s work, but thought I should focus on his moon poem for now. ‘The Moon Is…’ is a minimalist digital poem based on an exercise by Ross Sutherland, which features generative text underneath pixelated and video game-inspired photos of the moon. The text unfolds arrhythmically, without rhythm or regularity, in often-witty ways, while accompanying an ever-changing photo gallery: “The moon is a glitchy speaker / The moon is a glitchy airline / The moon is a vast airline / The moon is a vast discoverer / The moon is a cool discoverer”.
