If, Then: Andrew Smith on Visualizing the Remix with LiteraryDJ

September 23, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

On Friday, September 23rd at 1pm, Andrew Smith will lead a discussion and brainstorming session on his work-in-progress LiteraryDJ. Born out of Black literary and musical practices, LiteraryDJ is a set of data exploration tools that draw inspiration from techniques used in electronic literature and computational poetry. “These creative tools,” Andrew writes, “invite users to remix the found words, lyrics, and lines of literature discovered in the combined corpora of Hip hop lyrics and traditional Black scholarly texts into new creative expressions that continue the tradition of splicing, sampling, and weaving cultural memory to acknowledge and respond to histories past and present.This event is part of If, Then: Technology and Poetics, a collaborative, public, and interdisciplinary virtual working group and workshop series promoting inclusivity and skills-building in creative computation.
