If, Then: Nkosi Nkululeko on Reinventing the Square Poem (Analog Procedural Poetry)

January 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

On Friday, January 13th at 2PM, poet Nkosi Nkululeko will lead a craft talk and workshop on a procedural analog form of his own reinvention—the square poem. Drawing on a lineage of multi-directional and procedural poetry, the square poem demonstrates the expansiveness that constraint can lend and offers perspective into what generative and procedural forms can look like outside of digital spaces. Though, we imagine this form to have applications in and implications for computational creativity too! Friday, January 13 @2PM Eastern Nkosi Nkululeko on Reinventing the Square Poem If, Then Technology and Poetics. Supported by Carolina Seminars and the Digital Literacy and Communications Lab at UNC-Chapel Hill and Northeastern/UMD.
