Virtual Poetry

BY SERGIO RAMOS
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 10, 2015

Computers have been around for a while now but in some ways they have remained underused. Just like a paint brush can be used to paint a door or to paint a piece of art, the computer has the same duality. Just like the paint brush, the computer requires a skill set to explore its creative and poetic potential. Sergio Ramos discusses how computers allow us to create virtual poetry. When this was realized, preconceived notions of how a computer should be used, have been restricting us from looking into how the computer works and how can one extrapolate its processes.
