Poem Booth – Lights Vivid Sydney 2024

Location: Hay Street
Address: Hay Street, Darling Harbour NSW 2000
Dates: 24 May – 15 June 6PM – 11PM

Poetry engages with words. Illuminates. It speaks to being human in a way that nothing else can, but does writing it require being human?

Prepare to interact with the form in a unique way as you stand in front of the Poem Booth. Several poetry machines use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to transform what they perceive in front of them into one-of-a-kind works of poetry.

The final art will astound you with its depth, inventiveness, and relevance to what it observes.

How could a computer write that? What is creativity? What exactly does it mean to be human? Like poetry, the answers are discovered between the lines.

The installation represents the following country: the Netherlands.
