Media-rich poems with spoken word and original music explore how novel poetic devices like motion, speed, duration, sound and screenglow augment possibilities for literature and readership.
Generative poems - co-authored with AI and published via web3 platforms - probe the evolution of language beyond oral, written and human traditions, often leveraging blockchain as a next-gen printing press.
